Feeling pain or heightened sensitivity when you consume cold, hot, sweet, or acidic things can be quite disconcerting. Beyond the limitations to your food and beverage choices, tooth sensitivity can also make life difficult. To that end, Dr. Behzad Abadi advocates investigating the cause of the tooth sensitivity to help develop an effective treatment plan.
Tooth decay that forms on multiple teeth is a common cause of sensitivity issues. If you put off having the cavities treated by Dr. Behzad Abadi, the decay will slowly penetrate deeper and deeper into the tooth. In time, this could result in multiple cases of tooth loss.
Enamel erosion is also one of the more common causes of tooth sensitivity. This is often the result of poor oral hygiene and the regular consumption of acidic foods and beverages. In time, this can erode the mineral density of the tooth enamel to form microscopic channels through the enamel to the sensitive dentin layer of the tooth.
One way to improve the strength of your tooth enamel is to have Dr. Behzad Abadi administer a simple fluoride treatment. This might also be followed up by you using prescription fluoride supplements and brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
