Sensitive Teeth

Posted by on Aug 8, 2012 in Blogs | 0 comments

Sensitive teeth is a common problem. Teeth typically are sensitive due to the root surface becoming exposed. The root lacks the protective enamel to keep sensitivity at bay.

Some of the most common causes of sensitivity are gum recession, tooth decay, faulty fillings, and teeth grinding.

One of the most common ways to treat it is a special toothpaste formulated to alleviate sensitivity. They aim to help seal the weakened and exposed tooth structure.

It takes a few weeks for the toothpaste to fully take effect. If this does not seem to work, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist. Drs. Ali would be happy to answer any questions you have, so feel free to contact us at 781-237-9071 or smile@wellesleydentalgroup.com.
