Stop the Sting of Tooth Sensitivity

Are you fighting the feelings of pain and pressure that come from sensitive teeth? Discover the different dental options to take away the ache of tooth sensitivity.

Tooth Sensitivity Sources

In healthy teeth, there are protective layers of tooth enamel above the gum line and a substance called cementum below. Beneath both is a layer called dentin that keeps the heat, cold, and acidity of foods and drinks from touching the tooth’s nerves. If this dentin recedes, the nerves have no protection from those sensations and the result is the sting of sensitivity. Fortunately, tooth sensitivity can be treated by an affordable dentist.

Causes of Tooth Sensitivity

Do you feel a tingling or throbbing sensation when extreme temperatures touch your teeth? Then you’re probably dealing with tooth sensitivity. There are many causes of this painful problem, but most experts in family dentistry find that these are the most common:

  • Cavities and tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Tooth erosion
  • Worn fillings
  • Exposed tooth roots

Common Treatment Options

While there are many different treatment options based on the cause and your case, only an expert in family dentistry can determine the best choice for you. Yet most affordable dentists tend to use these treatments:

  • Toothpastes that stop pain from reaching nerves
  • Fluoride gel treatments to strengthen enamel
  • Dental crowns
  • Tooth bonding
  • Root canals
  • Surgical gum grafts
