Do You Experience Teeth Sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity

Do you suffer from tooth sensitivity? Does the idea of eating or drinking something cold bring
you discomfort? Teeth sensitivity can range when it comes to the degree of pain. Whether mild
or severe it’s important to find the cause and seek out treatment right away. We are here to help
Also known as dentin hypersensitivity, teeth sensitivity is a common condition people face. Teeth
sensitivity refers to the painful condition that occurs when the inner layer of the tooth is exposed.
Although a common issue, there is no one answer or treatment. There are numerous symptoms
that come along with teeth sensitivity including sensitivity to temperature variations, pain from
cold or hot drinks, pain from brushing or flossing, or sensitivity to sweet foods.
What causes tooth sensitivity?
Teeth sensitivity can be caused by different things: worn tooth enamel, exposed tooth roots,
cavities, a cracked or chipped tooth, or gum disease. These things can be caused by either poor
diet, not brushing your teeth regularly, or even high-stress levels. Feeling stressed can cause
bruxism, which is a condition where you excessively grind your teeth or clench your jaw.
Over time, the pressure from grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw can cause them to slightly
alter position and slowly wear down tooth enamel.
Contact us today to learn more about bruxism and how we can help. We offer oral appliance
therapy, which is an effective treatment option for teeth grinding.
How can we eliminate pain from tooth sensitivity?
If you’re experiencing tooth sensitivity, it’s important to not ignore the problem in hopes that it
magically disappears. It’s unlikely for tooth sensitivity to go away on its own. If you’re
experiencing tooth sensitivity you should see a dentist right away. Try to stay away from cold
drinks or sweets to help subside the pain until you can see a dentist. Make an appointment
today if you’re experiencing any tooth sensitivity.
How can we keep tooth sensitivity away in the first place?
Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly every day can help keep tooth sensitivity away, but the
enamel around your gums and teeth can slowly start to disintegrate if you’re putting too much
pressure. Try switching to a soft bristle toothbrush to help eliminate the pressure and force. Call
us today at (605) 342-6652 and we will help supply you with the right toothbrush and toothpaste
to best suit you.
