Have you ever been eating an ice cream cone in Juno Beach when you felt a sudden jolt of pain in one of your teeth? If the enamel is eroded, or the gums have receded, the dentinal layer of the tooth is exposed. The substances that cause tooth pain travel to the pulp where the nerves of the tooth are located. Ouch!
Tooth sensitivity can be a signal that something is wrong. It may be caused by periodontal disease or bacteria build-up in a crack of a tooth.
Enamel erosion can be caused by a number of factors including acidic foods and drinks, teeth grinding, or cracked teeth. If your teeth are sensitive following a professional teeth whitening such as the ones we do here at Weinberg Dentistry, the sensitivity will probably be gone in a few weeks.
Surprisingly, one cause of gum recession for our Juno Beach patients is brushing too hard. That’s right; it is possible to brush too hard!
If you experience constant or intermittent pain in your teeth or gums, call (561) 420-0770 right away to make an appointment. Brion Weinberg takes tooth pain seriously.
