People who have sensitive teeth are always aware of the potential pain that can be caused by brushing, flossing, eating or drinking. Typically, this sensitivity stems from worn tooth enamel, or teeth with exposed roots. On occasion, however, such sensitivity is caused by other factors, such as cavities, cracked or chipped teeth, or a recently placed filling that is leaking. Similar discomfort can also be the side effect of other dental procedures, such as bleaching. If you have any concerns about tooth sensitivity, be sure to ask us at Sweet Tooth Dentistry. We will help you identify the underlying causes of your tooth pain.
