Proper Dental Care for Teeth Sensitivity Relief

dca-blog_teeth-sensitivity

When you have sensitive teeth, eating and drinking can become a challenge. Cold, hot, sour, and sweet foods can bring intense, shooting pain instead of pleasure. Even breathing in frigid air can hurt. Tooth sensitivity develops when your teeth’s underlying dentin becomes exposed. Dentin is the layer of material just under your tooth enamel; it contains thousands of small tubes that are connected to nerve endings. If your enamel becomes thin or damaged, or your gums start to recede, dentin exposure and subsequent sensitive teeth are likely.

What Are the Causes of Sensitive Teeth?

Some causes of sensitive teeth are unavoidable, but others can be modified. Here are several common conditions associated with tooth sensitivity:

  • Receding gums
  • Enamel erosion
  • Overly vigorous brushing
  • Teeth-whitening products and long-term mouthwash use
  • Eating acidic foods or drinks
  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Teeth clenching and grinding
  • Plaque on teeth roots
  • Recent dental procedures

7 Tips for Managing Teeth Sensitivity

Here are seven effective home dental care tips to help you deal with the painful symptoms of sensitive teeth:

  1. Practice proper dental care with regular brushing and flossing
  2. Only use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  3. Be gentle when brushing around your gum line
  4. Wear a mouth guard to prevent teeth grinding at night
  5. Use toothpaste developed for treating tooth sensitivity
  6. Limit or avoid acidic foods and drinks
  7. Have routine professional teeth cleanings and dental exams

Seek Expert Dental Care for Teeth Sensitivity

Dental bonding, dentin sealers, or varnishes applied to root surfaces can reduce some of the causes of sensitive teeth and relieve your pain if more conservative measures don’t manage your teeth sensitivity.
