Are You Suffering from Tooth Sensitivity?

Tooth Sensitivity

Do your teeth ache or do you feel a twinge of pain when you eat or drink hot or cold foods and beverages? Are you struggling with tooth pain daily? Sensitive teeth are among the most common dental problems for adults. You may be one of the 38 percent of adults in the U.S. who have tooth sensitivity. While it is not a disease, it can be an early sign of developing disease, meaning that you shouldn’t wait too long before seeking treatment from a family dentistry expert if the condition persists. Tooth sensitivity often occurs slowly over time due to receding gum lines, hard or vigorous brushing of the teeth, and tooth grinding. Whether your tooth sensitivity is chronic or an occasional tooth twinge, your dentist in Englewood can help.

It is a single layer of enamel that stands between your teeth and everything you eat and drink. That single layer of enamel has to stand up to a lot—that’s why it is the strongest substance in the entire body. Beyond the enamel lies another protective surface called cementum, which protects the tooth root beneath the gum line. And below that, is the dentin, a low-density substance comprised of small hollow tubes called tubules.

When the protective layers above dentin become damaged or worn, the tubules receive the brunt of what you consume. Hot foods, cold drinks, acidic snacks, and sticky desserts all have the opportunity to reach to the very core of the tooth, stimulating nerves and leaving you extremely uncomfortable. The damage is sometime so severe that even breathing through your mouth too sharply can induce a painful sensation. This type of damage is the root cause of sensitive teeth.

In many cases, sensitive teeth may be prevented through proper dental care, such as twice-daily brushing, once-daily flossing, and routine visits to the dentist. If you are already experiencing signs and symptoms of sensitive teeth, you should speak to your family dentistry expert about affordable dental care options for the treatment of tooth sensitivity.

There are a variety of treatment options for sensitive teeth. The treatment plan will depend on the cause of your sensitive teeth and the amount of discomfort that you may be experiencing. For immediate, at-home dental care remedies, try desensitizing toothpaste, which can help block tooth pain. Your dentist in Englewood may treat the affected areas with fluoride. If the issue is related to tooth decay or a broken, cracked, or chipped tooth, your dentist may have to use other treatments, such as fillings, crowns, or inlays. In the most serious cases, where the condition has extended into the gum line, a root canal may be necessary.

If any pain or discomfort of the teeth and gums persists for more than three or four days, call your dentist in Englewood for an appointment. The sooner you seek solutions, the better the outcome for your long-term dental health.
