Are you experiencing discomfort when consuming hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods? Our dental team can help diagnose the cause of your tooth sensitivity and recommend the appropriate treatment to ease your pain.

Most people have experienced tooth sensitivity at some stage in their lives and the intensity can vary greatly. Cold, hot, acidic or sweet foods/beverages may set the teeth off. The sensitivity occurs because the nerves in the tooth are irritated by:

  • Decay – bacteria inside the tooth
  • Exposed dentine (2nd layer of the tooth) – gum recession
  • Trauma – from clenching/grinding, accident
  • Infected nerve – abscess

The most common type of tooth sensitivity that we see on a daily basis is caused by exposed dentine/root surfaces. Through grinding/clenching of teeth, periodontal disease and excessive tooth brushing, the gumline around the tooth can shift and recede. This exposes the root surface of the tooth, which does not have the protective enamel covering it and is therefore sensitive.

What can you do?

  • Have regular dental examinations and cleans to ensure the cause is not decay or gum disease.
  • Brush twice a day with a soft toothbrush (electric toothbrushes are great) and floss or use interdental brushes daily. Ask your dental professional to show you the correct technique.
  • Reduce acid intake – check your diet for excessive fruit, juice, sports drinks, soft drinks, energy drinks, vinegar, wine.
  • Check that you have an acid reflux problem.
  • Chat to you dental professional about any grinding/clenching habits.
  • Use a sensitive toothpaste regularly – some brands advise you to rub the paste into your teeth as well as brush with it!
  • Use GC Tooth Mousse – a cream applied regularly that contains calcium, phosphates and fluoride.

What our patients say

On my recent visit I took my little boy for his first dental experience. The staff were wonderful and hygienist Alex did an amazing job of making him feel comfortable and ensuring he had an enjoyable experience. He had no complaints and even talks about when we will go back to the dentist. As my dental experience as a child was terrible, I could not recommend Alex and the team highly enough for a visit for children to make them comfortable and a positive experience.

I went for a routine check up and clean as a new customer to the practice. From checking in (Abby) to the clean (Dr Chantal and Kian), everyone was very professional and thorough. A very comprehensive assessment was made and a meticulous clean was provided by Dr Chantal. Overall great dental experience and I will be back.

I am a white knuckle dental patient (a product of school mobile dental care back in the 1960’s) I had a crown installed all in one visit today (less than 3 hours). Totally painless. All staff were wonderful and highly empathetic to my issues. The practice is highly recommended, which is why I have been a patient at Kedron for the last 15 years.

I have been going to Kedron Family Dental for a while now and such positive experiences so far at the practice. Dr Chantal and the dental assistants that work there are fantastic - professional and takes good care of your oral health. I would keep going back despite having moved to the other side of the river :))

Elwynn has been my dentist for many years, and without a doubt is one of the best! Extremely professional and knowledgeable; but where he is really ahead of the rest, is the care and explanation he provides throughout any treatment or examination. Great to have him in the Brisbane area!
