Sensitive Teeth Are No Laughing Matter
Sensitive teeth are a common and frustrating problem for millions of Americans.
Teeth can be sensitive to all kinds of products, but the most common sensitivities are to cold, hot, and pressure.
Because of this, sensitive teeth can rob you of the pleasure of eating and drinking, and when combined with the pain it causes, can dramatically decrease your quality of life.
A wide variety of factors can cause teeth sensitivity. Some of the most common causes include:
- Grinding or clenching your teeth
- An untreated cavity
- Gum disease
- Damage to the tooth (such as a crack or a fracture)
Because there are so many causes of sensitivity, there is no simple at-home treatment that is guaranteed to work.
If sensitive teeth are impacting your life, a visit to the dentist is the first step in reducing discomfort and returning to a pain-free lifestyle.
Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
When you visit, your dentist will carefully assess the specific cause of your sensitivity.
In some cases, a filling, crown, or other dental procedure will eliminate the problem. In other cases, a topical treatment applied to the tooth is necessary.
We have developed a research-based and effective method for tackling exactly this sort of sensitivity.
A specific combination of topical fluoride, desensitizing gel, and resin can be applied to the surface of the tooth.
This forms a protective barrier that dramatically reduces the impact of temperature and pressure on your teeth.
With this option at your disposal, your sensitive teeth can be a relic of the past.

Dr. Shah is a compassionate, caring, skilled dentist. I am not a fan of going to the dentist (any dentist), but Dr. Shah always takes the time to make me feel at ease. He recently gave my smile a much needed makeover with 5 porcelain crowns and I couldn't be happier.
Great service from the entire office. Scheduling is always a positive experience, cleanings are fast and effective and more-involved services are always conducted pain free. I also appreciate that Dr. Shah takes time to speak with you and set you at ease. Insurance and billing are always addressed in a timely manner. I would recommend this practice to everyone!
