Many people suffer from “sensitive teeth”, this being said, the causes are numerous. A common cause of sensitivity ( especially to cold and sweets) is root exposure. For various reasons, the root structure of teeth can become exposed to the air and when this occurs, the tooth can become sensitive. This is because the roots actually have microscopic tubes that connect to the nerve system of the tooth. These tubes are fluid filled and sweets and cold can cause the fluid to move which then causes a sensation ( sensitivity) in the tooth. A quick and easy fix to this can be as simple as sealing these tubes with tooth colored filling material…(bonding). Most important; this process is painless and requires NO INJECTION…….that’s all for today….bye bye and keep it flossy!!!
