Dentist 101 of Houston (713-773-1300) has updated its dental care services at its Chinatown office to include treatment of the causes and symptoms of tooth sensitivity.

The Dentist 101 team has announced the service update in response to research from the Journal of the American Dental Association indicating that over 12% of people experience tooth sensitivity. In light of this data, the Houston dental care practice will be educating its patients on the causes of dental sensitivity, as well as any factors that aggravate symptoms such as certain foods and drinks.

Dentist 101’s updated services include the assessment of the patient’s symptoms, after which a course of action is proposed, such as recommending desensitizing toothpaste and prescribing fluoride for use at home, or suggesting more intensive treatment methods such as root canals or resin applications.

The dental practice explains that sufferers are most likely to experience tooth sensitivity when consuming hot or cold food and drink, or when biting down on something hard. Disproportionately affecting people who use at-home teeth whitening treatments, it occurs when the protective enamel on the surface of a tooth gets damaged, and the dentine, nerves, and root within it become exposed.

As well as damage that naturally occurs over time, symptoms of sensitivity can also be caused by a chipped tooth or by gum disease. Dentist 101’s team has expertise in advanced dentistry techniques for treating and preventing common problems, as well as tooth extraction, dental restoration, fillings, and routine cleanings.
