Sensitive Teeth

Do you feel a shooting pain in your teeth when eating or drinking something hot? Does the thought of biting into ice cream or a cold hard apple make you wince? Sensitive teeth can be a burden for many people and can be caused by several things. It is always important to seek advice from a dental professional so the source of the problem can be identified and treated.

One cause of sensitivity is dental erosion, which is the loss of tooth enamel. Enamel is the hard outer coating of a tooth, which protects the sensitive dentine underneath. If the enamel is worn away or eroded, this dentine is exposed which can lead to pain and sensitivity, which can be worsened with extreme temperatures.

Erosion can be caused by your diet (frequent consumption of high sugar or high acid food or drink), tooth brushing habits (brushing too hard), tooth grinding, certain medical conditions and eating disorders. For top tips on protecting your enamel and for effective treatment of tooth sensitivity come to the practice for a check-up, where we can create an individualised care plan for you.

- Glenda Woods, 72, Ickenham Replacement gold inlay

 

  Very thorough, very good explanation, very reassuring, felt would be in very good hands. Excellent service provided on a consistent basis, very caring, friendly and professional. Good explanations, always has time, regularly checks with the patient during treatment, very calm approach, good team support. Bruce Mutch is very patient focused on an individual basis, his very reassuring and calm approach helps to relax the patient. Previously I was apprehensive about dentists generally, but not at this practice.

- Mark Galloway, 58, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleaning. Previously crowns.

 

  Now a positive experience going to the dentist rather than something to dread. Fantastic professional service from the moment you enter until you leave. You could not beat it. Reassures, comfortable, listens to and relaxes compared to the very stressful experiences with previous dentists. The relationship is based on trust – I have total confidence in the professional expertise and empathetic attitude – previously a 'nervous patient'. All staff are friendly and professional. It is clear that there is an ethos of putting the patient at ease and providing very excellent standards of care. I just wish I had found this practice earlier.

- Anne Garrihy, 53, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleanings, previously had crowns and fillings.
