Tooth Sensitivity Causes

It is difficult for patients to determine what is causing their tooth sensitivity. Maybe it is consuming something hot, or consuming something cold? What tends to happen is patients just avoid consuming certain foods or beverages to avoid tooth sensitivity. We want to give patients the freedom to consume hot or cold foods without worrying about the painful and uncomfortable effects of tooth sensitivity.
Tooth sensitivity can be caused by factors like:

  • Gum disease
  • Exposed tooth root
  • Damaged or missing dental filling or dental crown
  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Teeth Grinding
  • Dental Cavities

Treating tooth sensitivity can vary due to the cause of your tooth sensitivity. Dr. Marra will skillfully and thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to check for any signs of dysfunction. If he discovers a dental issue, he will consult with you and develop a plan based on your dental needs. Some treatments for tooth sensitivity may include:

  • Root canal
