Don't Suffer From Tooth Sensitivity Any Longer By Abid Paghdiwala, DMD on July 25, 2018

We are sure you enjoy eating ice cream just as much as the person next to you, especially in the hot summer months. However, if sensitivity in your teeth is preventing you from enjoying a rich, creamy, sweet frozen treat or a cool, refreshing drink, then you are not alone. Today it is estimated that about 45 million of the US population suffer from teeth sensitivity to either hot, cold or sweets.

Some of the reasons why teeth can be sensitive are:                                                                                                                              

  • Decay
  • Cracked teeth
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Worn filling
  • Exposed tooth roots because of aggressive brushing, gum recession and gum disease.

Sensitive teeth can be treated quite easily, and depending on the cause, we may suggest:


This can reduce some of the pain and discomfort by strengthening your enamel and dentin. The fluoride can be applied on your teeth by us in the office, or can be applied by you at home in the form of pastes, gels or rinses. The fluoride coats the teeth in microscopic layers, protecting the sensensitve teeth.


We can help reduce sensitivity by applying special sealants to cover exposed root surfaces. We cover the sensitive areas of your teeth with tooth-colored bonding composite resin, protecting those areas from cold and hot irritation.


If you are experiencing sensitivity due to grinding your teeth, we will take a mold of your teeth and use that to make a mouth guard to protect your teeth from pressure and damage. This will not only reduce sensitivity but also prevent fracture of the teeth, which could necessitate root canal therapy or even result in loss of toooth.

There is no reason to suffer when there are a number of remedies available that will alleviate tooth sensitivity.
