Sensitive Teeth Dentist, Hawthorn East
If your teeth are prone to sensitivity, you may feel acute pain or discomfort commonly after having cold or hot food or beverages. Tooth sensitivity can be triggered by hot or cold air, sweet food or drinks, cold water rinsing, receding gums, cracked teeth or worn-down dental fillings. Dental erosion due to loss of tooth enamel from acidic foods, drinks or gastric fluid, can also cause tooth sensitivity.
If you suffer with tooth sensitivity, it can be treated, sometimes as easily as using a toothpaste for sensitive teeth, or further treatment may be suggested by our dentists.
