Tooth sensitivity is a condition characterized by tingly feeling in mild cases or stinging pain in severe cases affecting one or more teeth. The tooth sensitivity may occur constantly or intermittently while ingesting hot or cold beverages or food. Sometimes tooth sensitivity is mistaken as fracture of the tooth.
What causes tooth sensitivity?
- Aggressive tooth brushing leads to exposure of dentine which is quite sensitive to hot and cold foods.
- Grinding and Clenching of the teeth
- Periodontal disease
- Acid wear from drinking excessive soda/juices/citrus fruits
- Chipped or Fractured tooth.
There are many solutions for teeth sensitivity like over-the-counter fluoride rinses, gels, desensitizers, soft tooth brushes and fillings which are done in-office.
