PAINFUL TOOTH NECKS

Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages can occur as a consequence of the gum separating from the enamel. This problem arises as the result of choosing the wrong toothbrush (hard bristles) and because of a wrong brushing technique.

The occurrence of sensitive tooth necks can be prevented by using a toothbrush with soft bristles and an adequate brushing technique which we explain to you during your first examination.

If the tooth necks are already exposed and that occurrence is causing you problems, we can alleviate this by impregnating the tooth neck with an impregnation varnish. We can coat the exposed part under the enamel margins with a liquid composite material (we make a filling) and so even further protect the tooth.
