It’s no surprise that dental problems can emerge from a variety of places: the wrong foods, genetics, a chipped tooth from a football game that results in a root canal in the future. One of the most important things we can do as practitioners is to help patients engage with and deeply understand their own health, including why these problems emerge and what we can to do treat them. It’s for this effort that we examine the nine most common dental problems that we see on a regular basis.
Problem Seven: Tooth Sensitivity
A problem that affects millions of people, tooth sensitivity can be a real nuisance and might even be a sign of a bigger problem. If your teeth are experiencing mild sensitivity, the problem is most likely treatable. However, sensitivity may be caused by a more significant problem, such as an abscessed tooth. Patients with significantly sensitive teeth often have worn tooth enamel or exposed roots, leading to increased sensitivity when brushing, flossing, eating, or drinking. Sensitivity can also arise from cracked teeth or excessive grinding. If you are experiencing sensitivity when drinking, eating, brushing, or flossing, it’s important to contact your dentist and schedule an appointment for an examination as soon as you can.
