Tooth sensitivity can be a great annoyance at best and truly debilitating at worst. At Thomas R. Lambert DMD, we can find a solution to your tooth sensitivity problem. Feel free to contact our office with any additional questions or concerns you may have.
For many people, the issue of tooth sensitivity is a mysterious one. The cause of the problem may not be obvious, and many patients choose to simply deal with the problem rather than seek help. Dr. Lambert and his team are here to help you find the answers you need. You do not have to live with this problem any longer. Below we have answered some of the key questions that we hear regarding tooth sensitivity.
Tooth sensitivity can arise for a variety of reasons. While many people think is it harmless — simply something that causes mild discomfort — tooth sensitivity can actually be a sign of a larger, more serious dental problem. If you are experiencing sensitivity to hot or cold, you may be suffering from one of the following conditions:
If you are experiencing sensitivity and you fear one of these conditions may be the cause, please contact our office immediately. We can help you get the care you need.
To determine what type of dental treatment is necessary, we first need to diagnose what is causing the sensitivity. If your sensitivity is mild and is caused by enamel erosion, we can offer desensitizing toothpaste to alleviate your discomfort. We can also fix any damage you may have using a dental filling, dental crown, or other dental restoration. For gum recession issues, we offer treatment that restores your gumline and re-covers the exposed tooth roots. If you have an infected tooth, we may suggest a root canal. Regardless of your situation, we can help you find a solution. You will not have to suffer any longer.
If your dental sensitivity is causing you discomfort, please contact our team right away. You can reach our office by calling Thomas R. Lambert DMD.
