Did you know that millions of adults deal with the discomfort and distress of sensitive teeth? Luckily, this pain doesn’t need to be permanent. Learn why you have teeth sensitivity and how to ease the ache.

Talking About Teeth Sensitivity

Are you plagued by the pain of sensitive teeth? If so, you’re well aware of the tingling, stinging sensations you feel when consuming foods and drinks that are cold, hot, sweet, or sour. You also know that sensitivity can strike suddenly when you brush your teeth or breathe in frosty air. Some people only experience this pain occasionally, but many face sensitive teeth every day of their lives.

Getting to the Root of Teeth Sensitivity

Under the tooth’s protective enamel is a sensitive layer known as dentin. The dentin leads directly to the nerves of the tooth. When your tooth’s protective enamel is worn down and your gums start to recede, the dentin becomes exposed and makes your tooth more sensitive because anything that touches the delicate dentin will trigger the nerve and produce pain. There are a variety of reasons why your tooth enamel and gums would wear away, leaving you with sensitive teeth, including:

  • Overzealous tooth brushing, which can “brush away” your tooth enamel and lead to gum recession
  • Abrasive toothpastes
  • Receding gums
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Teeth clenching and grinding
  • Age—adults experience teeth sensitivity more often
  • Recent dental care procedures
  • Teeth whitening

Subdue the Pain of Sensitive Teeth

The way to treat teeth sensitivity is to see a dental professional who can offer you reasons and remedies. Your problem may be a sign of an underlying medical concern that requires immediate treatment, but it’s usually simply an issue that can be addressed with better dental care. Your dentist may offer you some advanced in-office procedures to protect or strengthen your tooth enamel, but patients are typically advised to follow these steps at home:

  • Make sure to avoid brushing too hard
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Brush with a special, desensitizing toothpaste
  • Practice proper dental care at home
  • Have professional dental care check-ups and cleanings regularly
