Here’s a few words on that very common issue and what you can do about it.
First off, it’s important to know when you’re suffering from tooth sensitivity as opposed to more serious issues with your teeth. One of the first things that it’s important to notice is to sensitivity can come and go. One minute, cold drinks or hot liquids can cause a flare up. Sometimes even breathing in cold air in the winter can trigger a mild sensitivity attack.
Having a procedure done like Serangoon scaling polishing can actually alert one of our professional hygienists to the issue if your gums are receding away from your teeth. Otherwise, our dentists can pinpoint a number of causes of tooth sensitivity that include:
- Tooth enamel that’s been worn down over time. One of the major reasons this happens is using a hard bristle toothbrush and being too aggressive when you brush your teeth. We like to suggest a soft to medium bristle variety and slow gentle strokes to avoid this issue.
- Over time, drinking too many acidic beverages and eating foods with a high acidic level can wear down the enamel and gums and cause tooth sensitivity too.
- There are even a variety of gastrointestinal diseases that can cause the enamel on your teeth to erode away.
- Gum disease is another culprit. If you smoke, you should quit immediately and adopt a good oral hygiene routine. The best of these routines include brushing and flossing twice a day.
There are a few things that you can do tooth combat to sensitivity. Brushing with a sensitivity toothpaste is one way to lessen the pain you feel. Of course, the best method is to adopt a proper oral hygiene routine so your enamel and gums stay healthy.
