Tooth sensitivity is one of the most common dental concerns that patients face. Although tooth sensitivity can be uncomfortable, it may also be an indication of a more complex dental concern. If you are experiencing tooth sensitivity or pain, be sure to visit an experienced dentist as soon as possible.
Buckhead dentist Dr. Deborah King offers advanced solutions for complex dental concerns. Dr. King will examine the teeth and gums to check for any signs of dysfunction. Identifying the cause of tooth sensitivity allows Dr. King to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Our goal is to help patients with tooth sensitivity alleviate their symptoms and prevent further damage to their teeth and gums.
Common Causes For Tooth Sensitivity
- Teeth Grinding: Most patients don’t realize they grind their teeth until they visit the dentist. Excessive teeth grinding and clenching can cause damage to the biting surfaces of the teeth, leading to worn or damaged enamel. When the enamel is damaged, the dentin or the pulp of the tooth may be exposed which may cause tooth sensitivity or tooth pain.
- Chipped, Cracked, or Fractured Teeth: If tooth damaged is left unaddressed, it can lead to tooth pain and tooth sensitivity. Dr.King offers a full range of solutions to restore damaged teeth and alleviate your symptoms.
- Gum Disease: Gum disease can compromise the health and function of the teeth. When gum disease is left untreated, patients may experience symptoms such as bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity, receding gums, halitosis, and shifting teeth.
- Worn or Damaged Dental Fillings: Worn or damaged fillings allow bacteria to seep into the crevices, which may lead to tooth sensitivity or tooth pain.
