At the office of Dr. Keith Chertok, DDS, we want to take this opportunity to remind our patients of the importance of addressing sensitivity before it leads to larger oral health issues.

Indeed, if left untreated or unaddressed, tooth sensitivity may lead to gum disease or other severe oral health issues.
