Are your teeth sensitive? At the office of Ryan M. Ross, DDS, we offer a variety of treatments to help reduce sensitivity and help you feel more comfortable. We invite you to contact us at 805-541-5800 to learn more about tooth sensitivity treatment in San Luis Obispo, California, and to schedule your consultation with our caring dentist.

Pressure or sensitivity to temperature may be caused by any number of factors, including:

  • Cavities
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Infection
  • Hairline fractures
  • Cracked teeth

In many cases, this sensitivity can be reduced or stopped with a minor procedure. For example, cavities are frequently treated with dental fillings. In most cases, a cavity is limited to the outer layers of tooth enamel, and it can easily be repaired by removing the decay and filling the empty space. Dr. Ryan Ross uses tooth-colored filling materials to produce natural-looking results. More severe cavities, infections, and some types of cracked or fractured teeth may require a root canal, dental crown, or even an extraction to resolve the issue.

When you visit our office, our skilled dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine the cause of your sensitivity, and we will work with you to find a solution that is appropriate for your needs. We encourage you to contact us as soon as you notice the problem so that we can provide treatment before the condition worsens and causes you greater discomfort.
