If hot, cold, sweet or very acidic foods and drinks, makes your teeth or a tooth sensitive or painful then our staff at Flossophy Dental is sorry to break the news. You have sensitive teeth. Tooth sensitivity can come and go over time, but when it occurs it’s usually caused by dentin on root areas that have been exposed due to receded gums or periodontal disease. It is important to tell our doctors if you have sensitive teeth so that they can examine your mouth for tooth sensitivity and discuss the best treatment method.
Sensitive teeth can be caused by the following dental issues: worn tooth enamel from brushing aggressively, tooth erosion due to highly acidic foods and beverages, tooth decay, gum recession that leaves your root surface exposed, and grinding your teeth at night. Having a conversation with our doctors at Flossophy Dental is the first step in finding relief from your discomfort. If you’ve been suffering from painful sensitivity that keeps you from eating foods that you love, make an appointment today.
If you are suffering from sensitive teeth, please give us a call to discuss your treatment options.
