Tooth sensitivity is a common dental issue that is found in many smiles. If you are one who suffers with this condition, we are happy to help you. Just simply call our office today and schedule an appointment with our friendly dentist.

You will generally know if you have sensitive teeth if you struggle with eating or drinking hot or cold foods or drinks or with brushing your teeth. Usually, sensitivity is a sign of exposed tooth roots and tooth nerves. The common causes of tooth sensitivity include:

• Worn teeth
• Tooth decay
• Gum disease
• Teeth-whitening products
• Plaque buildup
• Teeth-grinding habits
• Age
• Acidic foods
• Dental work
• Long-term mouthwash use

There are many things that can cause tooth sensitivity, but there are also many treatments that can free your smile from the condition, like:

At home
• Brushing and flossing regularly
• Using a soft-bristled toothbrush
• Using desensitizing toothpaste
• Watching what you eat
• Using fluoridated dental products
• Refraining from grinding your teeth
• Visiting your dentist every six months for a cleaning
