Tooth Sensitivity Could Be a Warning of a More Serious Problem

Do you suffer from toothaches caused by sensitivity? Mild to extreme bouts of pain? This could actually be a warning sign of something more serious.

When dentin, the soft material that supports the tooth, is exposed along the gum line you will have painful reactions to sudden changes in hot or cold foods, changes in air temperature and more. Typically this is felt in the front teeth, but can extend to the molars depending upon the severity of the problem.

Sensitivity can be caused by brushing too hard or grinding your teeth at night. But it can also be a symptom of gum disease and tooth decay, which can both lead to serious issues if not addressed appropriately.

Depending upon the severity of the problem, Scottsbluff Dentist offers a wide range of solutions to address the root problem. Don't continue to deal with the pain! Come in and find a solution, and get your life back again!
