Causes of Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive teeth can be caused by the following dental issues:

  • Worn tooth enamel from using a hard toothbrush and using a hard grip while brushing aggressively.

  • Tooth erosion due to highly acidic foods and beverages.

  • Tooth decay, worn leaky fillings and broken teeth that expose the dentin of your tooth.

  • Gum recession that leaves your root surface exposed.

  • Grinding your teeth at night.

  • Post dental treatment sensitivity – common, but temporary, especially with procedures such as crowns, fillings and tooth bleaching.

 

Dental Treatment Needed

Talk to your dentist at My Gentle Dentist @ Arana Hills.
