Where Sugar Sensitivity Comes From

Having good oral hygiene is important for a number of reasons. Your overall oral health is the starting point of feeling well and being healthy physically.

It may seem like we are nagging you when you come in for your visit by constantly reminding you to brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day, but our job is to make sure we do everything we can to keep you smiling. Here are some things that may cause sugar sensitivity in your teeth.

What Causes Sugar Sensitivity

Any kind of sensitivity in your teeth may come from erosion of enamel on your teeth. This can be a result of brushing too hard, wear on your teeth, or eating or drinking things with a higher acid content. Sugary foods are the main cause of cavities in your teeth. Without proper oral hygiene practices everyday buildup of bacteria and plaque will increase your risk of cavities, and increase pain and discomfort.

This may also lead to hot and cold sensitivity, or other future problems if left unattended. Sensitivity to anything is the first warning sign that something is wrong. There are a couple ways we can help you get rid of the discomfort. Filling a cavity or getting a crown is designed to help you save your tooth/teeth. Most likely no one will even notice you had work done, but you will definitely notice the pain is gone.

We are here to help you take care of the things that are going to happen. With so many things to tempt us, and busy lifestyles, things get in the way sometimes. Our job is to make sure you are happy, healthy, and keep a beautiful smile. No one wants to hide their smile or be in pain.
