Treatments available for sensitive teeth
from The Community Voice
If you have sensitivity to cold drinks, if it hurts to eat ice cream, if brushing along the gum line gives you sharp pain, or if you avoid dental cleanings due to sensitive teeth, there is hope. Treatments are available, both at home and at the dental office, to alleviate your pain. Tooth sensitivity along the gum line, particularly to cold and touch is a common occurrence. This is usually due to exposure of the dentin underlying the hard outer enamel layer of the tooth. Dentin has microscopic fluid-filled tubules with a direct connection to nerve endings in the pulp of the tooth.
