Have you found yourself to be one of the 20 percent or more of Americans suffering every day from dentin sensitivity? There are a couple things you can check to find out; if you are suspicious that your teeth are sensitive, please contact us immediately.

You can identify whether you are hurting from tooth sensitivity by logging its major symptoms. If you drink a hot or cold drink and detect only a tiny bit of sensitivity, you probably just need to brush your pearly whites slightly more habitually; when you notice short, intense discomfort, you could have tooth sensitivity problems. Other signs include stimulation when brushing or touching the chompers, pain from sugar, and pain from air blowing on your pearly whites.

Without care, dentin hypersensitivity can greatly impact a patient’s life. As tooth sensitivity is often an indication of tooth erosion, untreated chompers could fall out and cause difficulty eating and speaking for the patient. In some cases, new dentin layers can develop to guard the pulp and roots of the teeth, but if this doesn’t happen in time, the complications of tooth sensitivity could be catastrophic. We recommend seeking service for dentin hypersensitivity as soon as possible.
