Facts and Fixes for Sensitive Teeth

dca-blog-437-Sensitive-Teeth_1200x630

Teeth sensitivity is a very common condition, with millions of Americans sharing this sensitive struggle. Luckily, there are many ways to treat sensitive teeth as soon as you know the source. To discover the reasons and remedies, check out this expert dental care advice.

The Story on Sensitive Teeth

If you suffer from teeth sensitivity, you’ve felt a sharp sensation in your teeth after consuming foods and drinks that are cold, hot, acidic, or sweet. This occurs because your protective layer of tooth enamel or gum tissue has worn away over time, exposing the underlying layer called dentin that leads to the nerves of the tooth. When this dentin encounters pressure or major changes in temperature, this literally “strikes a nerve” and produces a pang of pain.

Causes of the Condition

According to dental care experts, this sensitive layer of dentin becomes exposed for various reasons. The most common causes of sensitive teeth include:

  • Brushing your teeth too much
  • Over-aggressive brushing that wears away the tooth enamel
  • A cracked, chipped, or broken tooth can expose the delicate dentin
  • Gum recession
  • Age, with sensitive teeth more prevalent in adults
  • Highly-acidic beverages, such as sodas and fruit juices, can erode tooth enamel and reveal the dentin beneath
  • Tooth grinding, which can grind away the tooth enamel
  • Certain dental care treatments, such as teeth whitening and dental restorations, can cause temporary teeth sensitivity following the procedure

Help for Healing

The only way to know the actual source of your teeth sensitivity is to have a dental examination. In the office, your dentist can apply protective treatments or place dental restorations on sensitive teeth to build up your tooth enamel. A dental care professional can also prescribe at-home advice to soothe the sting of sensitive teeth. Many recommend the following regimens:

  • Brush and floss gently, yet thoroughly, to prevent further recession of your enamel and gums
  • Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Choose a de-sensitizing toothpaste
  • Get regular professional check-ups and cleanings to reduce future sensitivity
