Do you suffer from sensitive teeth?  This is a common problem and at London Smiling our team will work with you to find the cause of the problem and the best solution for you.

What are sensitive teeth?

This condition occurs when the underlying tissue of the teeth, called dentine is exposed in some way.  This results in pain when the exposed teeth come into contact with hot or cold food

Anyone can suffer from sensitive teeth, but it is most common in those those aged between twenty and forty.

What causes tooth sensitivity?

There are many factors, sometimes in combination that can cause this problem

These include, gum recession, tooth decay, chipped/cracked teeth, worn teeth either from tooth grinding or eating acidic foods.  Sometimes even using the wrong mouthwash can cause this.

How are sensitive teeth treated?

Once the cause of the problem has been identified, treatment is often straightforward.  This can range from the use of special toothpastes to fixing the underlying problem, such as using cosmetic bonding to repair any chips or splints to help reduce excessive teeth grinding.
