What causes sensitive teeth?

Sensitive teeth can be caused by a range of factors. The porous part of the tooth, called dentin, is the region that registers pain, and dentin can become exposed due to:

  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Teeth injured by clenching or grinding
  • Receding gums caused by gum disease or improper brushing

Testimonials

I recently began seeing Dr. Krempa for all of my dental work, and I must say I have been thoroughly impressed with his work. He is as professional as they come and manages to balance that with a very high sense of comfort. The entire staff is excellent and knowledgeable and they do everything they can to make sure you are taken care of to the fullest. I strongly recommend you make the switch to him, you will not regret it!
