If you’ve ever dealt with sensitive teeth, you probably understand how unpleasant it can be? Are you ever worried that you’ll bite into something too hot or too cold? Does this hesitancy ever make you miss out on your favorite foods? If you simply think that tooth sensitivity is something you have to deal with, we have good news for you: we can help you deal with sensitive teeth.
If you’re dealing with sensitive teeth, one of the first things we’ll have to do is find the underlying reason for your sensitivity. In reality, sensitive teeth can be caused by several problems, including tooth decay, exposed roots, gum disease, and soft enamel. Fortunately, we can help you deal with these problems.
Still, there are a few other problems that could be causing your sensitivity. You see, if you brush your teeth too hard, you could actually injure your pearly whites. Similarly, if you use a brush with hard bristles that are too hard, you could actually hurt your teeth and gums. Either of these issues could cause your sensitivity. You can also avoid these problems by using a soft brush and by brushing softly.
Did you know that grinding your teeth could also be the reason you have sensitive teeth? While that may not seem like a serious problem, you may not know you’re grinding your teeth while you’re sleeping. Luckily, we can offer you a number of solutions, including a custom mouthguard to wear at night.
