Having sensitive teeth can be inconvenient and painful at times, especially because you’re often not able to eat or drink your favorite hot or cold foods or drinks. It’s also difficult to brush your teeth from time to time, which is a problem in and of itself. If you currently suffer from tooth sensitivity, we are happy to help you know a little more about it so you can take the first step in treating it!

The causes of tooth sensitivity are generally:

• Tooth decay
• Gum disease
• Old/worn fillings
• Worn down teeth
• Exposed tooth roots
• Fractured or broken teeth

Now, with these problems, there are also many treatments available. Those treatments include:

• Desensitizing toothpaste
• Dental crowns
• Fluoride gel
• Dental inlays
• Dental bonding
• Surgical gum grafting
• Root canal therapy

You can also use home treatments, which are brushing and flossing regularly, using a soft-bristled toothbrush, and watching what you eat. You can also refrain from grinding your teeth and visit your dentist every six months for a dental cleaning.

We care about you and your smile, and we want you to have the best oral health possible, so we encourage you to call our office today and schedule an appointment so we can finally find the perfect sensitivity treatment for you. We look forward to helping you!
