Teeth sensitivity is more common than you may realize, with millions of adults enduring the ache of sensitive teeth. But today, there are many ways to both help and heal the problem. Discover what leads to the lingering pain and how to get real relief.

Straight Talk about Teeth Sensitivity

When you have sensitive teeth, you know the sharp pains you feel when consuming foods and beverages that are hot, cold, sour, or sweet. You also know that teeth sensitivity can strike suddenly when you brush your teeth or breathe in cold air. Whether you only feel this pain every once in a while or deal with it on a daily basis, you need to address the ache.

8 Causes of Teeth Sensitivity

There’s a layer called dentin that lies beneath the tooth enamel. Dentin leads directly to the nerves of the tooth. When your tooth’s protective enamel wears away and your gums begin to recede, the dentin is exposed, making your teeth more sensitive because anything that touches this delicate dentin triggers the nerve and produces pain. Here are some of the reasons why your tooth enamel and gums would wear away and leave you with sensitive teeth, including:

  1. Aggressive tooth brushing that erodes tooth enamel and causes gums to recede
  2. Abrasive toothpastes and mouth rinses that wear away enamel
  3. Tooth decay
  4. Gum disease
  5. Receded gums
  6. Grinding and clenching teeth, which harms tooth enamel
  7. Age, with adults struggling with sensitive teeth more often
  8. Teeth whitening
  9. Recent dental care procedures

5 Ways to Stop Sensitive Teeth

To relieve your teeth sensitivity, you need to visit the dentist who can find the cause of your case. Your problem may indicate an underlying medical concern that requires immediate treatment, but it is usually just an issue that can be addressed with better dental care. Your dentist may offer you some advanced in-office procedures to protect or strengthen your tooth enamel, but patients are generally advised to adhere to the following steps at home:

  1. Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  2. Never brush too hard
  3. Use a desensitizing toothpaste
  4. Follow proper at-home dental care
  5. See your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings
