Sensitive Teeth? Causes and solutions

At Koplon Implant & Family Dentistry, we have a lot of patients call us and visit, complaining about sensitivity in one or several of their teeth. They experience pain while drinking hot or cold beverages, brushing their teeth, and even just in breathing. If you've experienced tooth sensitivity, you're not alone. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, at least 40 million people in the United States experience tooth sensitivity on some level. 

There can be many causes for teeth sensitivity, including but not limited to: 

  • Tooth decay
  • A cracked tooth
  • Effects from teeth grinding
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Gum recession
  • Gum disease 
  • Weak tooth enamel 

So what are your options, and how do you know what is causing your tooth sensitivity? While Dr. Koplon and his team may recommend a desensitizing toothpaste as a temporary fix, Dr. Koplon always recommends that if you are experiencing sensitivity on any level in your mouth that you make time to come in and have the area looked at. There could be any number of reasons as to why your teeth are sensitive to everyday elements like water, food and even just talking, but our team wants to ensure that you are treated the right way without leaving anything up to chance. 

Are you experiencing tooth sensitivity? Give us a call at 205-699-2551. We see patients from all over Birmingham, including Leeds, Pell City, Moody, Anniston, Trussville, Sylacauga and beyond.
