Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?

If you feel tooth sensitivity when you sip coffee or bite into ice cream, Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA is here for you.

Millions of Americans have sensitive teeth. Problems with hot and cold foods and drinks are one of the most common complaints. Tactile issues – biting or chewing hard foods – is another.

Fortunately, many cases of sensitive teeth respond to special sensitivity toothpastes. There is a lot to choose from, and most toothpaste brands include a line for this issue. Lots of people report good results in as little time as a week or two.

Even if you’re in that lucky group, you should have your sensitive teeth checked by a professional. One of the most common causes of sensitive teeth is enamel erosion, which can expose the dentin. Believe it or not, aggressive brushing or using a hard-bristle toothbrush can lead to enamel erosion, which is why we always recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Other causes of sensitive teeth include:

  • Tooth erosion from highly acidic foods and beverages
  • Tooth decay
  • Receding gums
  • Bruxism (tooth grinding)

The most important thing is to talk to us about it at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA. We’ll advise you on treatment. Our services include general dentistry, and patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga also come to us for cosmetic options. Contact us today!
