Why Are My Teeth Sensitive?
Sensitivity occurs in teeth for a few reasons. Trauma to the teeth is one major cause of sensitivity. If a tooth becomes chipped or is broken, the nerves may become exposed or may not be as well-protected as before. The habitual grinding of teeth can also lead to sensitivity. A tooth may also become sensitive if the gum-line recedes, which can be linked to gum disease or mistreatment.
Whatever the cause of your tooth sensitivity, a dentist can help you decide what form of treatment is right for you. For more information, contact the Austin dentist office of BridgeView Dental by calling 512-347-8299.
