We Care Your Sensitive Teeth

Tooth sensitivity is the most common dental problem that involves pain (or) discomfort in teeth when exposed to hot, cold and certain foods. The pain will be a sudden and sharp and last for few seconds to minutes, as temporary. Tooth sensitivity is otherwise called dentin hypersensitivity. This problem occurs when the enamel in the teeth gets thinner, (or) the recession gum occurs.

Common causes of tooth sensitivity

  • In cracked teeth, the bacteria are filled up and cause inflammation in the tooth pulp. In severe cases, this condition leads to the formation of abscess, infection.
  • Using hard brush may lead to tooth sensitivity since it wears off tooth enamel, causes dentin to be exposed.
  • Gum recession occurs mostly in a periodontal disease that exposes dentin
  • Teeth clenching and grinding wears down the enamel
  • Consuming acidic foods will corrode tooth enamel
  • Plaque formation, Nerve damage
  • In the gingivitis condition, the inflamed and sore gum tissues result in tooth’s root exposure
  • Using mouthwash for a long period will affect the tooth. Some OTC mouthwashes comprise acids and when the dentin is exposed, the presence of acid in the mouthwash causes tooth sensitivity and damages the dentin layer. So, it is safe to use a neutral fluoride mouthwash.
  • After some dental procedures, the teeth may have hypersensitivity. Usually, this condition will disappear within a week’s of time.
