Tooth Sensitivity Explained

Tooth Sensitivity

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 sensitive teeth can be the result of enamel erosion and the subsequent exposure of dentin and nerves, not all cases of pain and tooth sensitivity can be so easily explained. There may be underlying issues at work. Only by consulting with a dentist in Bradenton can you get an accurate diagnosis and receive the treatment you need.

If you are suffering from tooth sensitivity caused by exposed tooth dentin and nerves, a toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth can help. Your family dentistry practitioner may apply a fluoride supplement to strengthen the teeth’s enamel. If receding gums are to blame for your sensitive teeth, a dental sealant may be applied, which will block irritants from reaching the tooth’s nerve. Or, a root canal procedure may be required to treat problems in the dental pulp.

Dental care techniques that will ease tooth sensitivity include gently brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled brush, using desensitizing and fluoride toothpaste, and flossing once daily. If you grind your teeth—especially at night—visit a skilled, affordable dentist for treatment options, which may include a mouth guard to minimize tooth sensitivity and prevent tooth fractures.

Avoid acidic fruits, carbonated beverages, and wine, which cause erosion of tooth enamel. If you do eat and drink these damaging foods and beverages, drink water or milk right afterwards, which will neutralize the acid’s effect. However, if you brush your teeth too soon after consuming acidic items, it can contribute to further enamel erosion.
