Understand and Conquer Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive Teeth

If you have sensitive teeth and gums, biting into an ice cream bar or enjoying hot cocoa might be a pleasure of the past. Tooth sensitivity can even make simple dental care uncomfortable. All family dentistry practices are familiar with the common problem of sensitive teeth. If your symptoms are diminishing your quality of life or making proper oral hygiene difficult or impossible, seek help from an affordable dentist immediately; good dental care can help you enjoy your favorite foods again.

Causes of Tooth Sensitivity

The following common dental conditions can lead to tooth sensitivity:

  • Tooth decay
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Receding gums
  • Periodontal disease

Sensitive Tooth Symptoms Explained

The crowns of healthy teeth are protected by a layer of enamel, the strongest substance in the human body. Underneath the gum line, a layer of cementum protects the tooth’s root. Beneath enamel and cementum is a less-dense substance called dentin that consists of tiny hollow tubes. When dentin loses its protective covering, cold, hot, and acidic foods gain the ability to stimulate the tooth’s internal nerves. This causes pain or sensitivity during eating, drinking, and even breathing in air through the mouth.

How to Help Sensitive Teeth

Products such as desensitizing toothpastes contain ingredients to block nerve sensations, and mild cases of sensitive teeth and gums may respond to them well. If over-the-counter treatment fails, or you have more severe symptoms, your dentist in Orange City can offer professional treatments such as the following procedures.

  • In-office desensitizing treatments
  • Fillings, crowns, bonding, or inlays
  • Surgical gum grafts
  • Endodontic (root canal) treatment
