Tooth Sensitivity

If you are one of the 40 million adults who suffer from sensitive teeth, it’s time to seek the help of Dr. Gregory Ross, DDS. Orthodontic appliances such as traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligner trays can cause sensitive teeth, but the primary culprit is usually a lack of oral care habits. If your teeth and gums wince when you eat hot or cold food and beverages, schedule an appointment, today.

Once, Dr. Gregory Ross, DDS diagnoses the cause of your sensitive teeth, he can begin to get the situation under control. When teeth become sensitive, it’s usually because some of the enamel has worn away. Though enamel can’t be replaced, the tooth can be repaired and restored to function normally. Tooth sensitivity can be reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste, having Dr. Ross apply dental sealants, and decreasing your acidic intake.

If you have questions or concerns regarding tooth sensitivity, please give us a call. To learn about services we provide at the practice, visit for more information. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Gregory Ross, DDS call our Forest Lake, MN location at 651-464-6988 or our Hudson, WI location at 715-808-8379.
