Tooth sensitivity is characterized by a sharp; stinging sensation in your teeth while having a hot coffee, warm tea, cold beverage or a cold ice cream.
Tooth sensitivity is one of most prevalent dental problems. Proper diagnosis is essential to address the root cause of tooth sensitivity. If you’re dealing with sensitive teeth and facing problems due to teeth sensitivity, contact us to schedule a checkup.
Your problem of teeth sensitivity starts when tooth enamel wears down, exposing the underlying surface called dentin.
The enamel acts as a protective barrier, dentin contains thousands of microscopic channels that offer direct access to your tooth pulp, which include blood vessels and nerves. Heat and cold can travel through these channels to reach these nerves, causing pain and teeth sensitivity.
Periodontal or Gum disease
Cracked or broken teeth
Hard Brushing (or using a hard-bristled toothbrush)
Tooth clenching and grinding

Although Teeth sensitivity is not an emergency concern, sensitive teeth are often the sign of bigger upcoming dental health problems. Make sure to discuss tooth sensitivity with your dentist so you can develop the right treatment plan.
You should only feel the sharp, short pain for a few moments, usually after eating something hot or cold (and sometimes under pressure). If your teeth are throbbing or in pain, you’re likely suffering from a toothache, not sensitive teeth. With proper care and treatment, you can lessen the sensation or help it go away completely, depending on the cause.
Tooth enamel is the hardest tissue in the body, however it cannot be regenerated. However, you can “remineralize” your enamel as well as find other solutions to ensure your teeth stay strong, healthy, and durable.
Many teeth whitening treatments and chemical bleach treatments often cause temporary tooth sensitivity. If you already suffer from sensitive teeth, avoid teeth whitening treatments until you’ve discussed it with your dental health care provider.
Everyone was nice, professional and able to answer any questions I had. If you want people who are passionate and care about your wellbeing, look no further I could not express how grateful I am for this office, staff and to the great work of Dr Dhawan! I had an extraction and 2 implants with no pain at all. The care and constant concern of the Dr and staff is remarkable.
