Tooth Sensitivity Explained

Sensitive Teeth

Anyone who has ever noticed a sudden, unexpected shock of pain while eating or drinking something hot or cold or even when brushing their teeth likely knows the frustration that tooth sensitivity can cause. Though many such instances are the result of enamel erosion and the subsequent exposure of dentin and nerves, not all cases of sensitive teeth and gums can be so easily explained. There may be underlying issues at work. Only by consulting with a dentist can you get an accurate diagnosis and receive the treatment you need.

The best treatment for the pain you are experiencing will be determined by the underlying reason for it. If you are indeed suffering from a common case of tooth sensitivity due to exposed dentin and nerves, desensitizing toothpaste formulations can be of great help. Your dentist may offer fluoride supplements to help strengthen the enamel of affected teeth. If receding gums are the culprit, your dental care professional may choose to apply a dental sealant to create a barrier to block further irritants from reaching the nerve. If none of these treatments does the job, a root canal procedure may be used to address issues in the dental pulp.

It’s important to know how to help sensitive teeth. You should always use a soft-bristled toothbrush, use gentle brushing motions, and floss every day. If you know that you grind your teeth, particularly at night, it may be wise to visit your family dentistry clinic to see if your dental care professional believes that a mouth guard would be useful as a way to prevent tooth fractures and sensitivity.

You can also take steps to stave off sensitivity by steering clear of acidic fruits, carbonated beverages and wine, as all of these have the ability to erode tooth enamel. If you do indulge in these things, make sure to drink water or milk soon after to neutralize their effect. Brushing too quickly after having these items, however, can lead to additional erosion that could otherwise be avoided.
