How To Fix Teeth Sensitivity

Posted on 11/22/2021 by Langtree Dental Associates
Have you ever experienced a jolt of discomfort when you took a sip of hot coffee in the morning or a cold glass of water on a hot day? You might have tooth sensitivity. Dentin is a tissue at the core of the tooth, and it is covered by enamel that shields the teeth. But, once the enamel decays or wears away, it exposes the dentin and causes teeth sensitivity. Gum recession can lead to dentin exposure along with grinding of the teeth. Bulimia or acid reflux also cause breakdown of the enamel and cause teeth sensitivity. Even your diet can play a part in dissolving your enamel. Preventing Teeth Sensitivity Enamel damage is not reversible. There is no way to grow it back once it is worn away. But you can prevent and stop the damage from occurring. The first thing to remember is good oral hygiene. Using a toothbrush with soft bristles and not brushing your teeth too hard while moving in a circular motion will help prevent enamel loss. Eliminate acidic beverages and foods from your diet. The acid that these contain can wear down the enamel on your teeth quickly. If you consume acidic food and drinks, rinse your mouth out with water afterward and wait at least 30 minutes before you brush your teeth. Be aware of clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth. Both can cause tooth sensitivity, so wearing a mouthguard while sleeping can help slow down enamel erosion. Also, don't forget to see your dentist for cleanings and examinations at least two times a year. See A Dentist In some cases, no matter how hard you try to prevent your teeth from being sensitive, one or more teeth will become that way. Enamel erosion and decay can affect any tooth. The first step to preventing or treating your teeth sensitivity is seeing a dentist. A dentist can develop the proper treatment plan for you specifically. Sometimes a dentist may use a special toothpaste that can aid in blocking sensitivity to the nerve. Fluoride gel can also be used to make your enamel stronger and decrease sensitivity. If decay or another tooth problem is causing sensitivity, a crown may be placed on the tooth. A surgical gum graft may correct the problem if your gum tissue is receding from the root of the tooth. A root canal may also be the solution in severe cases of teeth sensitivity. A dentist can do an examination and determine the best solution for you....
