(HealthDay News) -- Sensitive teeth can make drinking your morning coffee or eating an ice cream cone a painful experience.

The American Dental Association's mouthhealthy.org website suggests how to manage sensitive teeth:

  • Brush with a desensitizing toothpaste.
  • Get a fluoride gel treatment at your dentist's office.
  • Have the dentist apply a crown, inlay or bonding to correct tooth abnormalities.
  • Consider a surgical gum graft to protect an exposed root.
  • Talk to your dentist about the potential need for a root canal.
