How Can I Get Rid of Tooth Sensitivity?

Thursday, June 11th, 2015
Q.

I feel sensitivity in my teeth even when I breath. I’ve used many sensitive toothpastes but had no recovery on a permanent basis. I feel dryness in my mouth when I awake in the morning along with bad breath. I used to brush my teeth before going to bed. Can you suggest something so I could get rid of this situation? I have already visited many dentists but no permanent solution has been found for my problem. Some of my friends told me about online treatment.

I Suffer Badly From Toothache. My Dentist Thinks It’s Tooth Sensitivity. Should I Get A Second Opinion?

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I went to dentist today due to suffering badly from toothache! I was told I grind my teeth in my sleep as my front teeth are very worn! He X-rayed and sent me away with sensitive toothpaste as he is sure it’s sensitivity! However tonight I am in complete agony is this normally for sensitive teeth? I have taken painkillers but they haven’t helped! I don’t know whether a second opinion might be useful although I have never had any concerns about my dentist before. Thank you for your time.

Can I Have My Teeth Trimmed Down And Would This Cause Any Sensitivity Or Pain?

Monday, October 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus, I am 34 year old, male. My two front teeth are too big for the others. Can the teeth be trimmed without having to wear braces, veneers, a cap and/or crowns? The second thing I would like to know is whether this would cause me any sensitivity problems? I don’t want any sensitivity or pain as I currently don’t have any tooth problems. I don’t want to use braces and would only trim 2 of my front teeth without the use of veneers. Is this possible? Thanks.

My Teeth Are So Sensitive I Can’t Get Them Whitened. Why Does My Dentist Tell Me That My Teeth Are Healthy?

Friday, September 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have extremely sensitive teeth which causes severe pain in my face. They are also crooked & discoloured causing me embarrassment & I am really self conscious about them. I can’t whiten them as they are so sensitive. My front teeth are also moving as I am developing a gap in between them that I have never had before. My dentist isn’t very good & offers me no advice just saying there is nothing wrong with them. I have got to the point where I actually want them removing & replacing with natural looking dentures. Is this possible when I have, according to my dentist ‘healthy teeth’?

Q.

Dear Dr Gambroudes. 

Sometime in February last year, I had a weird sensation on my left canine tooth. I felt this sensation even more strongly whenever I had something to eat or something to drink. As soon as I could feel it, I’d have to stop eating or drinking because it got too intense. This went on for a couple of weeks. A few weeks after I first felt it, there was a chip on the tooth, which then left a hole in the tooth. A few days after that, I noticed that the affected tooth was changing colour. What could be the problem, and what do you advise I do in these circumstances? Thank you.

I Grind My Teeth And Have Had Some Sensitivity. Do You Know What Treatment I Could Have To Fix This?

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I recently got a new crown (second last back tooth lower on the right) it cost me quite a bit and it is super sensitive to hot/cold. I’m 56 years old and I have been prepared for another crown. I do grind my teeth and I have had sensitivity problems for quite a while with various teeth and some near the new crowns. I’ve been to a dental hospital but they dropped me as they said I would find cheaper treatment elsewhere. Do you know what I could do to find this cheaper treatment? Thank you for taking the time to listen to my problem.

I Have Decay In My Roots. My Dentist Tells My It Needs To Be Extracted. Is This Correct Or Is There A Viable Alternative?

Thursday, June 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have sensitivity in an upper molar. My dentist X-rayed and reported decay at the junction of the roots. He said that due to the position of the decay the only remedy he could recommended was an extraction.
My gums have receded somewhat due to my age but if possible I would like to avoid extraction. Is this advice correct or is there a viable alternative? I have an implant next to this tooth and I am worried that the gap left after an extraction could lead to weakening of the implant. Thank you.

I’ve Had A Composite Filling And Now I Suffer From Sensitivity. Is This Normal?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have had a composite filling along and below the gum line of my bottom back molar as the gum has receded.  Since having had this done I’ve suffered with high sensitivity so now can’t even use mouthwash as it is hyper-sensitive. Is this normal with this type of treatment? I’m worried about brushing it as it’s already fallen out four times and every time I go back, the dentist is having to grind a bit more of my tooth in order for the filling to stick. I’d really like some help with this. Thank you for your time.

I Have Very Sensitive Teeth But I’m Too Scared To Go The Dentist. Please Advise Me On Where I Should Go?

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope you can help me sort something out. I have 3 broken teeth which are very sensitive and I am in pain. But I just cannot go dentist as I’m just so scared but I need some help. The thought of another needle in my mouth makes me feel so ill. I really would like sedation just to have them all out and be done with. Please advise me on where I go from here? Is sedation possible on NHS? How quickly can I have it done? Also what do you recommend for someone as scared as myself? Even cold air on my teeth gives me have pain and chewing hard food is near on impossible. I want to get them sorted so I can have regular check-ups. Thanks.

I Get Sensitive Teeth But My Dentist Won’t Do Anything About It. What Would You Suggest I Do?

Friday, May 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I still have all my baby teeth apart from the front two on the top and bottom. I am now 19. They’re not loose, however they are painful. When I eat or drink certain things my teeth send a bolting ice pain that shoots through them and it really hurts. It makes me feel really down about my smile as with them being so small they make my mouth appear ‘gappy’. My previous dentist doesn’t really pay attention to my teeth maybe this is because I was an NHS customer. However now I work full time and I pay but I still don’t receive a service where he will look into the issues I’m having. What would you suggest I do? Thank you for your time.
