Sensitive teeth can be caused by a number of ways.

It can be caused from constant clenching and grinding.

It can be caused from acidic foods.

It can be caused from acid coming from your stomach, heavy tooth brushing where your gums recede.

It can be caused from decay as well.

So depending on what the issue is, will depend on what the solution is.

If it's recession, where you have a root showing, then we can paint or apply certain medicaments that will take the sensitivity away.

We can also use a laser to change the way the sensitivity of that tooth reacts to water inside the root.

But sometimes you have to put a filling on the tooth.

And sometimes it's just a matter of changing somebody's bite.
