Do you ever feel a sharp pain when you are enjoying some of your favorite treats? Tooth sensitivity can very painful or annoying. However, did you know teeth sensitivity could be a warning sign of something more? Here at our dental office in Greeley, Colorado, we take your oral health care seriously, which is why we are happy to give you some information on the causes of tooth sensitivity, so you can get the help you need.

Tooth sensitivity could be a warning sign of something needing to be addressed in your smile. For example, a cavity you cannot see could be causing the tooth sensitivity. This means calling up your dentist, Dr. Nicholas A. Jamison II to give you a dental checkup could help you put an end to the tooth sensitive problem.

Another cause of the tooth sensitivity could be gum disease. This could cause your gums and teeth to separate exposing the root of your tooth, which could also trigger pain or sensitivity. That is why finding the trigger for your tooth sensitivity is important to your oral health.
