You know without a shadow of a doubt that you’re experiencing a sensitive smile because nearly any motion, cold food item, etc. leads to some amount of uncomfortable zinging within your tooth. While you’re well aware that hope is on the horizon, when you set up a visit with our Riverside, CA team, you’re still very curious about what the cause might be (and, as a result, how we might be able to help). Stick around for a crash course in sensitivity, where it often comes from, and what to do next, as presented by your Riverside dentist.

Bruxism Can Cause It

Your sensitive smile seemed to blow in with the wind and you cannot figure out where it came from! To this, we remind you that if you are suffering from bruxism disorder, this can certainly cause it. Whether you have had bruxism for a while (and you’ve known about it) or this is the first you’ve heard of it, it’s important to remember that when you first begin involuntarily (yet chronically) grinding or clenching your teeth, you may not notice a whole lot of dental sensitivity. However, your Riverside dentist reminds you that over time, you may erode your dental tissue, which can cause discomfort. Receive treatment from us soon!

Oral Health Issues May Do It!

When smile sensitivity is impacting your teeth, your Riverside dentist reminds you that this is a common symptom associated with oral diseases. This might mean that you have a cavity, nerves are exposed, and you’re feeling some uncomfortable sensations. You might have an infected tooth. It could be a small crack! Fortunately, there’s a solution to fix the problem, so the symptom goes away.

Hint: See Your Dentist!
