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 had a broken tooth and needed emergency care. I was able to get in almost immediately. Dr. Krempa gave me more than one option as to the care and length of time it would take for each of the options provided. My tooth was fixed and I was on my way in a short amount of time. I have always had fears and pain with dental work from other dentists. This was the best experience I have had. I have found my new dental provider. From the time I walked in and was greeted with smiles, to the time I left, it was a great experience with everyone there.--Suzanne B.
