Why are my teeth sensitive?

Dentist Metairie LAPain occurs in teeth when the inner layers of the tooth are exposed. The white enamel portion of teeth is a strong protective layer.  When enamel is damaged, hot, cold, and sweets can cause pain. Tooth decay, erosion, grinding and clenching, as well as bite problems, can damage the enamel. 

Treating Tooth Sensitivity

To treat sensitivity, the dentist must first diagnose the cause of the problem. Next, the doctors and staff at Oak Family Dental will work with you to suggest several effective treatments that may include changing oral hygiene habits, diet, fluoride, desensitizing toothpaste, restoring a damaged tooth or correcting the bite. Sensitivity can be a sign of a serious dental problem down the line; you should see the dentists at Oak Family Dental right away if you suffer from tooth pain.
