Are you dealing with sensitive teeth? Are you ever scared to chomp into something hot or cold? Do you ever have a hard time eating your favorite foods? If you’ve decided that you’ll just have to avoid some of these foods, we have good news for you: there are a few things you may be able to do to avoid and address sensitive teeth.

Naturally, if you’re coping with sensitive teeth, we may need to find the underlying reason for your sensitivity. In reality, your sensitive teeth could actually be the result of a number of issues, such as gum disease, tooth decay, or soft enamel. Luckily, we can help you address these problems.

Still, would you be surprised to learn that a few other issues could cause your tooth sensitivity? You see, if you brush your teeth too hard, brushing too hard may damage your teeth and could eventually cause your sensitivity. Using a brush with hard bristles can actually cause the same problems. You can usually avoid these problems simply by using a soft brush and brushing softly.

Finally, did you know that grinding your teeth could also cause sensitivity? While teeth grinding may not seem like a very serious problem, you might not be able to recognize the issue on your own. Sadly, many people grind their teeth while they’re asleep and don’t even realize they’re grinding. Fortunately, our team can offer you a number of solutions, such as a mouthguard.
