Tooth sensitivity occurs when the teeth become painful or sensitive to touch. This may be a sign of a dental issue or oral infection. Common causes of tooth sensitivity include hot and cold foods, beverages, sweet or sour foods, as well as beverages, and a dry mouth. It is important to understand the symptoms of tooth sensitivity so you can take the appropriate measures to manage your symptoms.
Teeth may become sensitive to temperature changes in several different ways. As an example, some teeth may become painful when exposed to hot or cold temperatures. Additionally, some teeth may become sensitive to the touch when exposed to sweet or sour foods and beverages. Additionally, certain foods and drinks can also make teeth hypersensitive. As another example, acidic foods including lemonade or vinegar may cause tooth sensitivity with alkaline foods including baking soda can cause relief. People with dry mouths often experience tooth sensitivity due to a lack of saliva coating the teeth.
If you have sensitive teeth, certain activities including eating, brushing, or drinking, can cause sharp, temporary pain within the teeth. Sensitive teeth often will typically result in worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots. Sometimes, however, tooth discomfort is caused by other factors, such as a cavity, a cracked or chipped tooth, a worn filling, or gum disease.
If you are bothered by sensitive teeth, visit your dentist. He or she can identify or even rule out any underlying causes of tooth pain.
Depending on the circumstances, your dentist may recommend:
– Desensitizing toothpaste
– Desensitizing or bonding
– Surgical gum graft
– Root canal
To prevent sensitive teeth from recurring, brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush as well as fluoride toothpaste, and ensure to floss daily. Using gentle strokes to continue cleaning, if you do grind your teeth, as your dentist for a mouth guard. Tooth grinding can fracture teeth and cause sensitivity.
You should also consider taking care of your teeth by reducing the amount of eating or drinking acidic foods and drinks, including carbonated drinks, citrus fruits, and wine.
Sensitive teeth can be a real pain, literal and figurative. If you have sensitive teeth, you may experience pain or discomfort when you eat or drink certain foods or beverages, or when you brush or floss your teeth. Sensitive teeth can also make it difficult to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages. There are a number of things you can do to help reduce the sensitivity of your teeth. For example, you can use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth, which can help to block the pain signals from reaching your brain. You can also avoid eating or drinking foods or beverages that are known to trigger sensitivity. Finally, you can talk to your dentist about other options for reducing the sensitivity of your teeth, such as getting a custom-fitted mouth guard.
A sensitive tooth can be a sign of infection, but it can also be caused by other factors such as tooth decay, gum disease, or worn tooth enamel. If you have a sensitive tooth, it’s important to see a dentist to determine the cause. If the sensitivity is due to an infection, the dentist will likely prescribe antibiotics to clear the infection. If the sensitivity is due to another factor, the dentist may recommend a different treatment such as a filling or a crown.
