Sensitivity of teeth

Sensitive teeth can be the result of a variety of causes.

They can determine the root cause or identify the root reason for your tooth discomfort.

It is crucial to remember that although many people suffer from normal and sensitive teeth, experiencing discomfort is not normal! They may suggest using a soft-bristled toothbrush, Desensitising toothpaste and a fluoridated mouthwash for relief.

Loose tooth

Suppose you suffer from a loose tooth or a tooth that is out of alignment. In that case, It is advisable to make an emergency appointment before it gets any worse or causes additional issues.

The best choice is to wait for your dentist to check out the area and decide what treatments are required. Your dentist will examine the gums and bone surrounding the tooth and develop a solution. There are a variety of options to retain or remove the tooth. We will always suggest the most suitable replacement options to extract the tooth.

Broken tooth

Even if your tooth is barely chipped, it is recommended that it is important to check with your dentist immediately. They might repair it using tooth-coloured filling material or even a crown. Dental Veneers are also a suitable option for replacing chipped or cracked teeth. They are also available in a shade that matches your natural tooth’s colour.
