Tooth Sensitivity in Bethlehem

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.

Why are my teeth sensitive to hot and cold?

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:

  • Enamel erosion
  • Abnormal wear due to grinding or bite problems
  • Tooth decay or otherwise structurally damaged teeth
  • Failing restoration
  • Gum recession
  • Plaque buildup
  • Dental infection

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.

What kind of treatments do you offer?

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.

Dr. Lambert has been our family dentist for over 20 years. He is always professional, and he has gone out of his way for us when we’ve had emergencies. Carol Lee, the hygienist, is top notch, as is the rest of the staff. I highly recommend this dentist.

Dr. Lambert…..I just wanted to thank you for everything and tell you how much I enjoy coming to your office. Rare indeed is the experience of someone “enjoying” going to the dentist. Because you have done such an incredible job of staffing your business with people who create such an enjoyable, pleasant, comfortable yet professional environment, I enjoyed my experience.

I am so impressed with Dr. Lambert and his staff that my whole family are now patients of his. I tell everyone I know that if they want a dentist that makes them feel at ease and possibly even enjoy dental visits, my dentist office is the one to see. Honestly, I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t met these wonderful people that have taken such great care of me.
