Sensitive teeth are a common problem. When you have ice cream or a sip of hot coffee, does the sensitivity from your teeth send you through the ceiling? When you brush your teeth, do you dread the sensitivity when the bristles hit certain areas?
It can be caused from tooth decay (cavities) teeth that are fractured or have micro cracks, dental fillings that need replaced because they are leaking and worn out, gums that are receded because of gum disease or traumatic forces caused because your bite is not balanced. Other causes of sensitive teeth can be worn tooth enamel from grinding and gnashing of your teeth (the stresses of life can cause this) or an exposed tooth root.
The treatment for sensitive teeth depends on what is causing your sensitivity. Sedona dentist Roy Daniels invites you to make an appointment to diagnose your tooth sensitivity cause, and get treatment for it.
Dr. Daniels may suggest a variety of treatments for your sensitive teeth.
