When pearly whites remain sensitive for too long, it’s probable that they’re a sign of a larger underlying condition, such as tooth decay. Left untreated, gum disease could lay waste to your mouth. But don’t worry: your friendly staff at Gilbert Omido DDS, P.A. is here to assist you.

A general appointment includes an evaluation for tooth sensitivity. As Dr. Gilbert Omido examines your pearly whites individually, they will take note of your reactions to see if any part of the evaluation has stimulated your chompers. If they sense that you look uncomfortable, they will ask you why and try to identify the issue. When they notice that the uneasiness is coming from a specific tooth, they might determine that you are hurting from tooth sensitivity.

Tooth sensitivity, also known as dentin sensitivity and dentin hypersensitivity, is an uneasiness in the oral cavity which is short, sharp and caused by exposure of the dentin layer of the teeth to stimulants like hot and cold. While a little degree of sensitivity in the dentin layer of your chompers is normal, you could be experiencing tooth sensitivity if the pain is major.

Please dial 316-683-0440 to talk to the Gilbert Omido DDS, P.A. location in Wichita, Kansas, and arrange an appointment with Dr. Gilbert Omido.
