Everyone has tooth sensitivity from time to time. However, some people have more pain. There are a variety of factors that contribute to sensitive teeth like genetics, thinner enamel, acid erosion, and even brushing too hard. An exam can help figure out which factor is most responsible, and Dr. Harlow and his staff can help remedy your situation.
Often, using a toothpaste or mouth rinse designed for sensitivity can help alleviate your discomfort. However, in some cases, tooth sensitivity could be indicating a more significant problem like decay, a cavity, or even gum disease. Tooth sensitivity is sometimes a precursor to a tooth infection, so please don't ignore it.
Often, a thorough professional cleaning may be all that's needed to get your teeth feeling comfortable again; however, in some situations, Dr. Harlow may need to recommend treatment such as a dental filling or crown to eliminate tooth decay and restore your tooth to health and comfort again.
