Sensitive teeth are typically the result of worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots but can also be caused by other factors, such as a cavity or a cracked or chipped tooth, or even as a side effect of another dental procedure such as bleaching. Everyday activities, including brushing, flossing, eating and drinking can cause you to temporarily feel pain in your teeth.
If you are bothered by sensitive teeth, the first step is to visit your dentist for an examination and evaluation. This provides the opportunity to rule out or identify possible causes of your discomfort and settle on a plan to address the problem. Don’t let sensitive teeth hold you back from enjoying life; contact Belle Rive Dental Clinic today for an appointment.
