Reasons Behind Your Sensitive Teeth

You are probably wondering what is causing your tooth sensitivity. There are a number of factors that could be causing your tooth sensitivity. For the health of your teeth, it is important to see your dentist at least twice a year to make sure there aren’t any complex dental issues developing. During a preventive care visit, patients can talk about any dental concerns they may have.

We understand that sensitive teeth are one of the most common dental concerns, so we have uncovered just a few reasons why you may be experiencing tooth sensitivity.

Reason #1: You grind your teeth. Teeth grinding is a common dental issue. Most patients don’t even realize they grind their teeth until the visit Dr. Patel. Teeth grinding exposes tooth enamel, which leaves your teeth susceptible to tooth decay and tooth sensitivity. At Fullerton Craft Smile Dental, we may suggest the use of a mouthguard. Mouthguards help keep the teeth protected from grinding. We can help create a personalized mouthguard to help the teeth remain healthy and protected.

Reason #2: You may have just had a dental procedure.Depending on the procedure, you may experience tooth sensitivity for a period of time. If your tooth sensitivity lasts longer than expected, it is important to schedule an appointment with Dr. Patel to help treat your tooth sensitivity and any other symptoms you may have.

Reason #3: You may have a cracked or chipped tooth. Having a cracked or chipped tooth can cause patients to experience pain, discomfort, and/or tooth sensitivity. Having Dr. Patel exam your teeth can help him determine the best course of action to fix your cracked or chipped tooth.
