Sharpstown, Houston Tooth Sensitivity Diagnosis & Treatment Options Announced

Dentist 101 of Houston (713-773-1300) has updated its services, offering Sharpstown residents treatment options for tooth sensitivity.

The local practice has announced this service update in response to a recent study from the Journal of The American Dental Association, which found that 1 in 8 participants reported hypersensitivity. This ratio only increased among those that had previously used at-home whitening treatments.

Dentist 101 of Houston now recommends that patients experiencing teeth sensitivity schedule an appointment at the practice since their symptoms could be a sign of a more serious issue, such as gum disease or another underlying health condition.

The CDC reports that over 47% of adults aged 30 or above have some form of periodontal disease, a common symptom of which is tooth sensitivity.

Dentist 101 of Houston's treatment process begins by inspecting the teeth and mouth to establish the root cause of the sensitivity. The practice explains that this condition typically occurs when the enamel is worn away or cracked, exposing the layer of porous material within the tooth, known as dentin.

Some causes, such as cavities, gum disease, or damage to the enamel, can be detected by the practice’s hygienists in an oral examination. Other conditions may require an X-ray.

Once the examination is complete, the team will tailor its care plan to address the issue at its source. For example, patients who are experiencing severe pain caused by damage or an infection in the soft tissue inside their teeth can undergo a root canal procedure.

Alternatively, over-the-counter toothpaste or prescription fluoride treatments for minor sensitivity to hot or cold food and drinks may be recommended.
