Dental Advice

What is tooth sensitivity?

What is tooth decay?

Regular dental visits are important because they help keep your teeth and gums healthy. You should have a regular dental visit at least every 6 months.

Sensitivity happens when gums pull away from the teeth or when gum tissue is lost. This exposes the tooth root below the gum line, resulting in sensitivity.

Tooth decay happens when acids wear away the tooth’s hard surface layer. Tooth decay can cause holes in your teeth.
These are called cavities.

The best way to take care of your mouth is to brush and floss twice a day. This helps remove the sticky film called plaque that collects on teeth and gums.
