Frequently Asked Questions
Sensitive teeth are typically the result of worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots. Sometimes, however, tooth discomfort is caused by other factors, such as a cavity, a cracked or chipped tooth, a worn filling, or gum disease.
The answer is, “Sometimes.” There are several circumstances under which tooth sensitivity will resolve: Temporary Sensitivity: Following a chipped or broken tooth or a normal filling, root canal, or other dental work, you may have temporary tooth sensitivity that will naturally resolve itself over time.
Once tooth enamel is damaged, it cannot be brought back. However, weakened enamel can be restored to some degree by improving its mineral content. Although toothpastes and mouthwashes can never “rebuild” teeth, they can contribute to this remineralization process.
