Do You Know the Underlying Causes of Sensitive Teeth?

dca-blog_teeth-sensitivity

If you’re one of the many people who have sensitive teeth, eating ice cream or drinking a milkshake can be intensely painful. When your teeth are hypersensitive to cold air, breathing can hurt. Even brushing and flossing become unpleasant tasks. Exposed dentin is at the root of tooth sensitivity. Dentin is the layer beneath tooth enamel and cementum. It contains thousands of tiny tubes that lead directly to nerve endings. When cold, heat, or sweet foods come into contact with the dentin, you experience pain.

Common Causes of Sensitive Teeth



Periodontal disease is among the most common causes of tooth sensitivity. Other causes include use of whitening products, tooth decay, cracked or fractured teeth, worn tooth enamel, defective fillings, and receding gums caused by aggressive brushing habits.

Avoiding Teeth
Sensitivity

While you can’t avoid all causes of sensitive teeth, you can control some factors. Maintain strict oral hygiene to prevent the onset of periodontal disease and tooth decay that lead to dentin exposure. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush, and brush your teeth gently, especially around the gum line. See your dentist regularly for routine exams and dental cleanings. If problems are detected at an early stage, it is easier for your dentist to resolve them before problems like tooth sensitivity develop.

Professional Dental Care for Teeth Sensitivity



If you’re already suffering from tooth sensitivity, several treatments are available to help you control symptoms. Over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste works by preventing sensation from traveling to nerve tissues. It may take several applications to produce significant results. If your problem doesn’t respond to toothpaste, you may want to consider professional treatment for teeth sensitivity, which includes options like desensitizing agents applied directly to teeth or restorative procedures like dental bonding, fillings or root canal treatment.
