Causes of Sensitive Teeth We Do Not Always Think Of
Posted on 3/25/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Having sensitive teeth can be a real pain. Sensitive teeth can prevent you from eating the foods you love. They may even make eating some foods unbearable.
Foods that are too hot or cold can make sensitive teeth hurt. Even foods that are sweet can make your teeth hurt. It may seem like you'll never be able to enjoy food again with sensitive teeth, but that's not true.
There are many causes of sensitive teeth, and you may already know some. However, not everyone has sensitive teeth for the same reason. While most people have sensitive teeth due to enamel wear, some people may have exposed tooth roots. The pain from sensitive teeth comes from the nerves underneath your teeth. These nerves are very sensitive. When your tooth isn't protecting these nerves, certain foods can irritate them. Your teeth may become thin due to over brushing or eating too many acidic foods. It's possible you may have sensitive teeth because you have gum recession.
Can You Cure Sensitive Teeth?
If you have sensitive teeth, there's no need to worry. Most people can benefit from toothpaste and mouthwash formulated for sensitive teeth. These products help sensitive teeth by filling gaps in the enamel. Once you treat your enamel, you should be able to eat anything you want again.
Sometimes, sensitivity products won't cure sensitive teeth. If you have sensitive teeth due to gum recession, gingivitis, or damaged teeth, these products won't help. In these circumstances, you'll need our help. We can treat your sensitive teeth using a variety of methods. The cause of your sensitive teeth will determine which treatment option is best for you. Besides being no fun, having sensitive teeth can damage your oral health. If you have lasting sensitivity, we're here to help you.
Please contact our office for more information on how we can.
