If you experience pain every time you eat or drink something hot or hold, or if you wince occasionally while you brush your teeth, then you may be suffering from tooth sensitivity and we are here to help you!

Tooth sensitivity is a common dental problem that often develops because of:

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

Tooth sensitivity is inconvenient and painful, and we strongly suggest that you come into our office as soon as you can so we can identify the problem and provide you with the right treatment. Depending on the severity of the problem, your treatment options may include:

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

No matter the treatment options for your smile, it is extremely important that you keep up with your oral hygiene routine each day. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing will help keep your smile in tip-top shape.

If you would like to know more or if you have any questions, please feel free to call our office today and talk to a member of our caring dental team. We care for you and your smile, and we are here to do everything we can to eliminate your teeth from inconvenient and painful sensitivity.
