Have the most effective treatment for sensitive teeth at Coolamon Dental Centre in Ellenbrook, WA.
What Causes Sensitive Teeth?
Tooth sensitivity occurs when the dentin, the layer beneath the tooth enamel, becomes exposed. The dentin contains tiny tubules that lead to nerve endings, and when exposed, these nerves can become irritated, resulting in pain or discomfort.
Here are some of the most common causes of sensitive teeth:
Brushing your teeth with excessive force or using a toothbrush with hard bristles can erode tooth enamel and expose the dentin layer.
Gum disease can cause the gum line to recede, exposing the dentin layer.
Cavities can also cause dentin exposure, leading to tooth sensitivity.
Clenching or grinding your teeth can wear down tooth enamel, making the dentin more susceptible to exposure.
Some tooth whitening treatments can cause temporary tooth sensitivity.

Treatment Options for Sensitive Teeth
A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged tooth, protecting it from further decay and reducing sensitivity.
Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help whiten discoloured or stained teeth, which can also reduce sensitivity.
If you grind your teeth, your dentist may recommend wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth from further damage.
Desensitising toothpaste contains compounds that block nerve endings, reducing pain and sensitivity.
If you have a cavity or a chipped tooth, your dentist may use a filling to repair the damage and reduce sensitivity.
If your tooth sensitivity is caused by infection or damage to the nerves inside the tooth, your dentist in Ellenbrook may recommend root canal treatment to remove the damaged tissue.
Maintaining good oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing regularly can help prevent further damage to your teeth and reduce sensitivity.
