Tooth Sensitivity Causes and Solutions

Sensitive Teeth

The uncomfortable condition known as sensitive teeth is the result of exposure to the dentin of one or more teeth. Dentin is the area of the tooth responsible for protecting nerves, and it can become exposed due to degradation of enamel or through gum recession. Tooth sensitivity is frequently triggered by hot and cold food or drinks and sometimes by excessively acidic substances hitting the teeth. While sensitive teeth and gums can certainly be painful, there are steps that can be taken to treat the problem.

To determine whether tooth pain is the result of tooth sensitivity or another, perhaps more serious problem, it is always wise to pay a visit to an affordable dentist. A dental care professional will be able to check for dentin exposure and do diagnostic testing to isolate the cause of the pain. In some cases, sensitive teeth and gums are the result of a cavity or gingivitis, both of which call for professional dental care treatments. But, it may be that a given case of tooth sensitivity is really due to the erosion of enamel or recession of gums that has caused dentin and root exposure.

If it turns out that a patient’s sensitive teeth are due to exposed dentin, several techniques exist that can help minimize discomfort. Dental care experts have the ability to perform in-office treatments that include application of fluoride varnish to strengthen enamel and the use of fluoride foam or gels in conjunction with bite trays. Your dentist in College Park may choose instead to apply bonding agents as a means to seal the dentin and block exposure to irritants.

Patients can also pursue one or more available home dental care techniques that are likely to lessen the pain resulting from tooth sensitivity. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush together with toothpaste products that are low in abrasives can be a great place to start. It may also be worthwhile to use specialized toothpaste products formulated to help soothe inflamed nerve endings. Regular use of special toothpastes obtained directly from a dentist can also work to strengthen the surface of affected teeth.
