Sensitive teeth can be from cracked or worn enamel. If you grind your teeth at night a night guard is a good preventative measure to decrease wear and sensitivity along with lowering your stress. If teeth or restorations are damaged then a replacement filling or other restorations may be necessary to alleviate the sensitivity. Give us a call if you have concerns or questions!
