Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive teeth are more common then people think.  1 in every 4 adults are affected by "Dentin Hypersensitivity". This sensitivity happens with drinking hot and cold liquids and food. Even air can cause pain and discomfort. The reason is gum recession exposing the root of the tooth or loss of tooth enamel exposing the porous part of your tooth also known as dentin, creating the sensitivity. 

The best way to take care of this problem is to let your dentist know and ask about what products you can use to help reduce the sensitivity and what treatment options are available. Don’t let this problem continue on without talking to your dentist. Sensitive teeth could actually be masking a bigger problem.

It is always better to see your Dentist as soon as you notice any change and catch a problem when it is small. We want to help you to keep your smile healthy. If you have any questions about this topic or any others please email us or feel free to call our office. We will be glad to help you.
