    What is Tooth Sensitivity?

    What is Tooth Sensitivity?

    Tooth sensitivity is a sharp in character and of short duration pain that follows after eating cold foods or drinking hot beverages and sometimes when brushing & flossing the teeth. Tooth sensitivity happens when dentin loses its protective coverings the enamel and cementum. Enamel protects the crowns of your teeth above the gum line and cementum protects the tooth root under the gum line.

    The possible causes of tooth sensitivity are brushing too hard, tooth erosion due to high consumption of acidic foods and beverages, tooth decay,  worn out filling or broken tooth, gum recession, grinding you teeth at night and post dental treatment like tooth bleaching.

    Dental Considerations:

    To solve the issue of tooth sensitivity it’s highly recommended to talk with your dentist about the discomfort you are experiencing. The dentist will decide which is the best treatment to solve the underlying cause of sensitivity. You can also use desensitizing toothpaste, use soft brush and always visit dentist for regular check up.
