If your teeth are sensitive to temperature changes or produce pain when chewing certain foods, it may be time to call Beaverton family dentist Dr. Michael Negru to schedule an examination. Tooth sensitivity is not always a pressing concern, but frequent discomfort or persistent reactions should be examined by an experienced dental professional.
If you are struggling with increased tooth sensitivity, please call to schedule an appointment at our comfortable Beaverton office.
What Causes Tooth Sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity is often a result of thinning enamel, an issue that can be caused by:
- Sugary or acidic foods and beverages
- Overzealous toot brushing
- Whitening toothpastes
- Certain mouthwashes
These causes are relatively easy to address by changing habits, but more serious issues may also be at work. These include:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Tooth infection
- Chips or cracks
These issues require dental treatment or they can get worse and cause additional problems. The best way to determine if one of these more serious concerns is the cause of your tooth pain is by visiting Dr. Negru for a professional examination.
