Tooth Sensitivity Treatment At Yuma Family Dentist

Have you ever been eating ice cream cone and suffered a sudden jolt of pain in one of your teeth? It’s a sign of tooth sensitivity. If you’ve got sensitive teeth, be sure to talk to us about it at The Yuma Dentist.

Tooth sensitivity can be an alert that something is amiss. It may be caused by a cavity, periodontal disease, gum recession, or bacteria build-up in a crack in a tooth.

A number of circumstances can cause gum recession including consuming acidic foods and drinks, teeth grinding, or cracked teeth. Surprisingly, one cause of gum recession is brushing too hard. That’s right; it is possible to brush too hard!

If your teeth are sensitive following a professional teeth whitening such as the ones we do here at Yuma Family Dentist, the sensitivity will probably be gone in a few days.

There are several treatments for tooth sensitivity including desensitizing toothpaste. Most brands of toothpaste have a sensitive teeth version.

At The Yuma Dentist, with offices in Fortuna Hills and Yuma AZ, we not only treat tooth sensitivity, we also carry out entire smile makeovers for our patients. Our services include general dentistry and dental implants. Make an appointment with us today.
