Suffering from tooth sensitivity can be an extreme hindrance to your well-being. This uncomfortable and sometimes extremely painful condition can be the result of overly-exposed roots of your teeth, nerve damage, or damaged and eroded enamel. Whatever the case may be, your teeth may become so sensitive that you will find trouble both eating and drinking and even exposing them to hot and cold temperatures. Fortunately, comfortable dentistry exists, which can allow you to comfortably combat sensitive teeth. Even if you don’t have sensitive teeth and you are simply anxious about going to the dentist, comfortable dentistry can help you.
You may experience sensitive teeth because of cracks, exposed bones, or nerves that you may or may not even be aware of! Our skilled dentist may provide you with some sort of a bonding agent or a dental filling to conceal the exposed area or prevent tooth decay from spreading amongst the other teeth. He can use comfortable dentistry while doing this in order to ensure your comfort and relaxation. If your sensitivity derives from receding gums, a bonding agent can be applied to cover the roots and sensitive nerve tissues to prevent any infection and relieve both pain and inflammation.
In severe cases in which the sensitivity becomes progressive or does not seem to budge at all, our dentist may suggest that you undergo a more involved treatment. Again, whether you are undergoing a simple filling or a more involved dental restoration procedure, comfortable dentistry can be used to put you at ease.
No matter what has caused you to have problems with your teeth, there is a treatment method designed to cater to your specific circumstances. At Implant Dentistry of Virginia, we are proud to offer comfortable dentistry in the form of anxiolysis and iatrogenic sedation.
