You don’t have to suffer with sensitive teeth! There are many treatments available that help ease the discomfort of sensitive teeth.
Healthy teeth have a layer of enamel that protects the exposed tooth surface from cold, hot, even sweets. If your enamel is wearing due to erosion, abrasion or your tooth root is exposed, hypersensitivity can occur. Some very effective solutions to this problem include desensitizing toothpastes and topical fluoride gels. For more severe sensitivity, bonding with composite material has been shown to be very effective. For extreme cases of hypersensitivity, crowns or inlays may ease the symptoms. Root canal therapy has also been proven effective for treatment-resistant tooth sensitivity. There is a solution to super-sensitive teeth – you don’t have to have pain when eating, chewing or speaking. Call us today for a consultation – we will find a solution for you!
