Do you cringe when you bite into an ice cream cone? Or do your teeth bother you if you are eating cold and hot foods at the same time? If you find yourself avoiding foods that are extremely hot or cold because they cause tooth discomfort, you may be experiencing tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is not uncommon, and most people experience it at some point. If you experience tooth sensitivity regularly, it can be an indication that you have a problem with your oral health.
At Emerald Dental, we are passionate about the state of your oral health. One of the best ways to be sure you have excellent oral health is to maintain your routine oral hygiene examinations in our office. Another way to be sure you have optimal oral health is to care for your teeth and gums properly throughout the year. In addition to brushing and flossing, it is important to be mindful of any changes in your oral health. Thankfully, your mouth often warns you when you are experiencing a problem with your teeth or gums. If you notice something that doesn’t seem right, we recommend contacting our office as soon as possible. Would you know what warning signs to look for that can tell you there is a problem with your oral health? We are here to help!
