What is Tooth Sensitivity? Sensitive teeth can be a result of dental health problems that includes receding gums and enamel wear. When the taste of ice cream or a sip of coffee gives you pain or if brushing or flossing makes you wince, you may have a problem with sensitive teeth, which is very common. Some of the causes could be because of a cracked tooth, worn fillings, worn tooth enamel, gum disease, tooth grinding or clenching, or tooth decay. The treatment of the problem is not hard. We determine the type of treatment depending on what is causing the sensitivity. Why does Dental Sensitivity Happen? Dental sensitivity can happen when the “Dentin”( softer part of the tooth) becomes exposed, and the sensitivity comes out because there are thousands of microscopic channels that run through the dentine towards the center of the tooth, and this is why external triggers can stimulate the nerves inside the tooth.
Can I Prevent Tooth Sensitivity? The best way to prevent dental problems is always keeping good oral hygiene. Brushing correctly twice daily and flossing once a day is significant to avoid this problem, and a low abrasion toothpaste is essential to help to reduce the risk have tooth sensitivity. A diet that is low in acidic foods and drinks like fruit juices, sports drinks, soft drinks, yogurt, red and white wine, etc. is also essential to prevent this condition.
