What Causes Tooth Sensitivity?

Worn enamel, receding gums, cavities, and decaying dental work are just some of the issues that can cause hypersensitivity to varying conditions, such as cold and heat. These issues can be caused by Periodontal disease (gum disease), acid reflux, worn fillings and fractured teeth, and consuming too much acidic food and drink.

Tooth sensitivity is caused by the movement of fluid within the microscopic channels located in the dentin of the teeth. Dentin is the layer of tissue found beneath the tooth’s hard enamel. These channels run to the nerve center of the tooth, called the pulp. When the tooth’s hard enamel is worn down or the gums have receded, these channels are exposed, and pain and sensitivity occur.

5 Ways to Get Relief for Your Sensitive Teeth:

Decrease Acid

Decrease all those acid-inducing foods from your diet. Soda and coffee are a couple of the top culprits for an acidic environment in the mouth. If you absolutely cannot decrease your intake, here's how to make it safer.

Soft Bristles

Your teeth need the TLC from a soft-bristled toothbrush. And by all means, be gentle! Vigorous brushing doesn’t make the teeth any cleaner … it can actually damage the teeth and gums.

Sensitivity Toothpaste

You’ll want to use a low-abrasion toothpaste specifically made for sensitive teeth when you brush. This will help protect the enamel of the tooth surface and avoid exposing the dentin.

Oral Health Routine

Prevent periodontal disease (a leading cause of sensitive teeth) by brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day (preferably before bedtime) and keeping your regularly scheduled dentist appointments.

Use a Desensitizing Tooth Gel. Using a gel for sensitive teeth can be a lifestyle game changer for those with sensitive teeth. (Ice cream, here we come!) It’s easy, inexpensive, and the fastest way to get the relief you seek.
