Do you have trouble eating or drinking foods and drinks that are hot and cold? Do you have trouble brushing your teeth from time to time because of the pain you experience? If so, you may be suffering from tooth sensitivity, and we are happy to help you understand a little more about the condition.

Tooth sensitivity is a common dental issue found in many smiles nowadays. So, don’t worry about having a condition that is not treatable. It is definitely treatable, but you will need to come into our office and meet with our dentist so we can treat the problem before it gets worse. Some of the problems that cause tooth sensitivity include:

• Worn teeth
• Tooth decay near the gum line
• Gum disease
• Tooth damage
• Teeth-whitening products
• Age
• Long-term mouthwash use
• Acidic foods
• Dental work

Some things you can do at home to help treat the sensitivity include brushing and flossing regularly, using a soft-bristled toothbrush, and watching what you eat. You can also use fluoridated products, refrain from grinding your teeth, and visit your dentist every six months. Professional treatments include:

• Dental bonding
• Fluoride treatments
• Dental sealants
• Dental inlays
• Root canal therapy
• Surgical gum grafting
• Dental crowns

Take the first step toward your healthy and comfortable smile by calling our office today and scheduling an appointment. We look forward to helping you!
