Ayar Dental

What causes sensitive teeth?

If your teeth are feeling sensitive to brushing, eating, or temperature, you may be feeling frustrated about the discomfort.

There are several different factors that could be causing tooth sensitivity, and Dr Ayar can help you pinpoint the root of your problem. A few factors to consider are:

  • Your tooth may have tooth decay or a cavity.
  • Your teeth may be worn or damaged due to clenching or grinding (bruxism).
  • Your tooth may be cracked or fractured.
  • You may be suffering from gum disease.

Once the root cause of your sensitivity is determined, your dentist in Ramsgate Beach can recommend the best treatment for your condition.

For example, if your tooth has a cavity from tooth decay, a dental filling may alleviate your sensitivity. If bruxism is the culprit, you might benefit from wearing a night guard while sleeping to protect your teeth. A cracked tooth will likely need a dental crown to restore it and protect it from sensitivity. And depending on the level of gum disease you are experiencing; a deep cleaning may help to alleviate tooth sensitivity.
