Tooth Sensitivty

Tooth sensitivity can develop from a variety of dental issues. Family and general dentist Dr. Lassiter can help examine your teeth and determine the cause and develop a customized plan to help treat your tooth sensitivity.

Possible Reason For Tooth Sensitivity:

A) You may have tooth decay. Untreated tooth decay can cause your teeth to break down over time, causing tooth sensitivity. It is important to treat tooth decay in a timely matter to stop the development of a more complex dental issue. Dr. Lassiter may suggest the use of a dental filling to help solve your tooth sensitivity.

B) You may have gum disease. Gum disease is highly treatable with proper care from an experienced dentist like Dr. Lassiter. Gum disease causes the gums to recede which exposes more of the tooth and can cause tooth sensitivity. At Lassiter Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of treatments to help treat your gum disease and restore the health of your smile.

C) You grind your teeth. Teeth grinding can cause the teeth to look work and uneven. More importantly, tooth grinding can cause patients to feel pain, discomfort, and/or tooth sensitivity. Dr. Lassiter can work with you to create a plan that will help protect your teeth. Dr. Lassiter may recommend the use of a mouthguard to help keep your teeth protected.
