Do you suffer from sensitive teeth? If so, you are not alone. Tooth sensitivity can make it hard to enjoy some of your favorite foods or drinks. Did you know it could be a warning sign of something more? Here at Smiles Unlimited in Livermore, California, we take your oral health care extremely seriously, which is why we are happy to give you some information on the causes of tooth sensitivity.

In many cases, tooth sensitivity could be a warning sign of something needing to be addressed in your smile. For example, a cavity you cannot see could be causing the tooth sensitivity. This means making an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Rakhi Jani, to give you a dental checkup could help you put an end to the tooth sensitive problem.

Tooth sensitivity could also be linked to gum disease. This could cause your gums and teeth to separate exposing a root of your tooth, which could also trigger pain or sensitivity. That is why finding the reason for your tooth sensitivity is important to your oral health.

If you would like to have your smile examined, please call us at 925.344.5757 to make an appointment with our friendly staff. Our dental team looks forward to helping you with your oral health.
