Sensitive teeth could be a beginning sign of more serious dental problems. Cavities, broken fillings, a bad bite, gum recession, or periodontal disease all require professional dental treatments but may at first manifest as sensitive teeth. Don’t live with the discomfort of sensitive teeth anymore! The talented dentists at SmilesNY provide the below cosmetic, restorative, and periodontal treatment options, but the first step to relieving sensitive teeth is a comprehensive dental exam to find the cause.
Cosmetic: Crooked teeth can be cosmetically unappealing, allow food to wedge more easily between teeth, and worsen a misaligned bite. Invisalign® in NYC can correct both cosmetic and functional aspects of your smile, allowing you to achieve not only a beautiful smile, but a healthy smile too! Invisalign® uses clear aligners, as opposed to clunky and noticeable brackets to straighten teeth and help correct a misaligned bite that may contribute to sensitive teeth.
Restorative: Gum recession is a common side effect of advanced gingivitis. Our talented dentists at SmilesNY can reduce your sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks, restore the contours of your gum line, and improve the appearance of your smile with gum grafting in NYC. The procedure only lasts from 30 minutes to 1 hour, and sutures are removed within one week. During gum grafting, healthy gum cells found on the roof of the mouth are transferred to the severely receding area. This treatment will prevent the threat of bacterial infection and further recession in patients with severe gum recession for long-term results.
Periodontal: Periodontal disease impacts every aspect of your smile; the health and appearance of your gums, the sensitivity of your teeth, and the quality of your breath. In advanced stages, periodontal disease will damage the underlying bone and tissue in your mouth. Repair this damage and keep your natural teeth by considering osseous surgery in NYC. This treatment only requires local anesthetic and pain relievers may be used after surgery to relieve any discomfort you may experience. Our onsite periodontist, Dr. Kevin Loshak, will provide you with detailed after care instructions.
Dr. Chase, Dr. Roth, Dr. Jackier, Dr. Loshak, and their staff look forward to discussing any questions you may have about Invisalign, gum grafting, or osseous surgery in NYC to relieve sensitivity in your teeth. You can contact us at our New York office at 212.752.6537, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation at SmilesNY.
