Sensitive Teeth: Causes, Treatments, and How Natural Smiles Can Help?
What Causes Tooth Sensitivity
Many people have gum recession or what is sometimes called “sensitive teeth”. This type of dental problem can happen because you have or have had gum disease which has resulted in the gum recession, you brush aggressively, you have recently had your teeth whitened, you grind your teeth or you have had poor quality fillings or crowns.
Treatments for Tooth Sensitivity
Fortunately there are many treatments available for patients with sensitive teeth, which are designed to help you enjoy cold food and drink again. These treatments range from using Desensitising agents on your teeth to well sealing fillings.
Toothpaste and Sensitive Teeth
Sometimes your toothpaste can make a difference when it comes to tooth sensitivity and gum recession. Your choice of toothpaste is important because some toothpastes are very abrasive and these can cause sensitivity inadvertently.
Call to Make an Appointment so you can Feel Better
While tooth sensitivity is very often caused by gum recession, and is often fairly straightforward to treat, sometimes tooth sensitivty is caused from other dental problems such as tooth decay. If you are having tooth sensitivity, we encourage you to make an appointment so Dr Waghela or Dr Anjli can provide you with a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment
