Your teeth expand and contract with changes in temperature in your mouth. Hot and cold food and beverages can cause pain or irritation to people with sensitive teeth.
As our teeth age, tooth enamel can be worn down, gums may recede exposing unprotected root surfaces, teeth develop microscopic cracks, exposing the interior of the tooth and irritating nerve endings. Grinding and clenching your teeth during the day or night can cause the ligament around the teeth to swell. All of these things can cause your teeth to be extremely sensitive. Just breathing in cold air can cause people with these problems pain and discomfort. If you are having sensitivity problems, call us to have an evaluation of you symptoms and their causes and find remedies. 856-428-1088
