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

Dr. Alex Krempa is a terrific Dentist! He is thorough in his analysis and treatment of my family's dental issues. Because he takes the time to explain with digital pictures what is going on in your mouth and how it can be improved or fixed, we naturally feel "on board" & leave wanting to do all we can to improve our dental health. He is incredibly smart and his demeanor is peaceful which puts us at ease. We are all much better off now that we are under the care of this great Dentist.
