When you have tooth sensitivity, certain foods can trigger pain or discomfort when you chew. Sensitive teeth can make you cringe when eating sweets, citrus fruits, or hot or cold foods and drinks. Fortunately, there are solutions to sensitive teeth issues, two of which are laser treatment and air particle treatment. These treatments block the stimulus along the root surface that can cause sensitivity, so you can eat and drink with ease. You can obtain laser and air particle treatment for sensitive teeth at Albrecht Dentistry in West Bend, Wisconsin.
Various factors can cause tooth sensitivity:
Anytime the enamel of your teeth wears down, it poses a risk of tooth sensitivity as it exposes the inner layers of your teeth to bacteria and acids in your mouth. Tooth sensitivity is a common problem shared by millions across the country. Brushing too harshly with a hard-bristle toothbrush or grinding your teeth at night can erode the enamel of your teeth and produce sensitive teeth.
Dr. James (Jim) Albrecht can treat your teeth to protect them from sweets and hot and cold temperatures. The treatments will form a protective barrier on the tooth/root surface to keep sensitivity at bay.
