Sensitive teeth plague over half of the population of the United States. Sensitive teeth can interrupt and ruin a perfectly good hot cup of coffee, a delicious bowl of ice cream, or even make rinsing your mouth out after you brush your teeth an unpleasant experience. It is important that you have your sensitive teeth evaluated by your dentist because sensitive teeth are typically indicators that something is not right inside your mouth.

Sensitive teeth are most commonly caused by the exposure of the dentin layer of the teeth. This layer of the teeth has thousands of tiny tubes that lead directly to the root of the teeth, causing extreme zaps pain to occur whenever cold or hot temperatures, or even sweet or sour tastes, hit the roots. Many people try to ignore their sensitive teeth by chewing only on one side of the mouth or simply avoiding certain foods or beverages. While this may provide temporary relief, it will not get to the root of the issue.

Sensitive teeth are an indicator that something is wrong with your oral health. Whether it be a small amount of gum recession or something more serious, your dentist needs to evaluate your mouth to find the problem. If gum recession is the issue, changing the way you brush your teeth, replacing your toothbrush with a soft bristled toothbrush, and using a desensitizing tooth paste are often all that are needed. For more serious gum recession, a white filling can sometimes be placed at the exposed area to protect the tooth.

However, there are other causes of sensitive teeth that are more serious and require intervention. A cracked tooth, an infected tooth, or gum disease must be treated as quickly as possible. These issues will never resolve on their own, and they will only become worse the longer you ignore them. Dental crowns, root canals, and other treatments can provide effective solutions that will restore your teeth and prevent further damage.

At Gold Hill Dentistry, we are here for all of your dental care needs. If you are plagued by sensitive teeth, please contact our practice right away. You do not have to suffer until your next appointment. In fact, if your next appointment is more than a week away, you could be compromising your oral health by putting off evaluation. We will evaluate your mouth to find the cause of your sensitive teeth, and we will make the most appropriate treatment recommendation. We care about your smile. Call today.

"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
