Tooth Sensitivity

Can you bite into an ice cream cone or drink a cold beverage without pain?  If so, you’re lucky.  If not, you’re probably one of a great percentage of people who suffer from tooth sensitivity.

What causes tooth sensitivity?  Nerve endings that reach from the center of the tooth into the outer layers aren’t being protected as well as they should be.  This could be caused by tooth decay, fracture or abrasion to the tooth enamel.  Teeth whitening can also cause sensitivity when some of the tooth enamel is eroded away.

What can be done about tooth sensitivity?  There are toothpastes specially designed for sensitive teeth but make sure they carry the ADA seal of acceptance to make sure it lives up to its claims.  The active ingredient in these toothpastes are strontium chloride or potassium nitrate.

At Restorative Dental, we also recommend a special treatment that can be applied in our office to the sensitive teeth that lasts for days or months.  These can be applied during your regular dental cleanings.

There is also a more permanent solution which is tooth colored fillings applied to the affected areas of the teeth. Dr. Sandberg expresses,  ”ask us about this method during your next visit to our office in Clarksville.  Together we can find a solution to tooth sensitivity that works best for you!”

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please call our office at (931) 648-0604 or visit our office in Clarksville, TN for all of your dentistry needs.
