If Drinking Coffee Hurts Your Teeth, Your Dentist Can Help

Tooth Sensitivity

When you have sensitive teeth, foods that used to bring pleasure, such as ice cream, candy, or hot and cold beverages, may become sources of pain. Tooth sensitivity is a common problem that virtually every family dentistry practice sees on a daily basis. It’s important to visit your dentist, who will help to help manage your symptoms so they don’t interfere with your daily dental care routine. The solution for sensitive teeth can be as simple as finding a skilled, affordable dentist in Atlanta.

Causes of Tooth Sensitivity

The following common dental conditions can lead to tooth sensitivity:

  • Tooth decay
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Receding gums
  • Periodontal disease

Tooth Sensitivity Symptoms Explained

The crowns of healthy teeth are protected by a layer of enamel, which is the strongest substance in the human body. Underneath the gum line, a layer of cementum protects the tooth’s root. Beneath enamel and cementum is a less-dense substance called dentin, which consists of tiny, hollow tubes. When dentin loses its protective covering, cold, hot, sweet, and acidic foods gain the ability to reach the tooth’s internal nerve cells. This causes pain or tooth sensitivity during eating, drinking, and even breathing in air through the mouth.

Treatment Options for Sensitive Teeth

Products such as desensitizing toothpastes contain ingredients to block nerve sensations, and mild cases of tooth sensitivity may respond to them well. If over-the-counter treatment fails, or you have more severe symptoms of sensitive teeth, your dentist in Atlanta can offer professional dental care treatments such as the following procedures.

  • In-office desensitizing treatments
  • Fillings, crowns, bonding, or inlays
  • Surgical gum grafts
  • Endodontic (root canal) treatment
