Are Your Teeth Sensitive To Hot And Cold? Here Is What You Can Do

May 15, 2021

Dentin is the cause of tooth sensitivity. It is the matter under the enamel, and once it is exposed, you start feeling dental sensitivity. Why this happens is that the dentin holds tubules, and these are connected to the nerves. As these tubules are exposed, the path to your nerves is open, and any stimuli can cause immediate tooth sensitivity.

Here Are Some Ways To Reduce The Sensitivity

  • Do not drink or eat anything too hot or too cold.
  • Stay away from acidic drinks.
  • Only use sensitive teeth toothpaste.
  • Use a soft bristles toothbrush and brush your teeth very gently.
  • Floss regularly
  • Make sure you regularly visit your dentist for a check-up.

Here Is How To Treat A Sensitive Tooth

Speak with your dentist about the following procedures as these can help you with sensitive teeth.

  • You can have your sensitive tooth covered in a desensitizing agent, which will help reduce the sensitivity.
  • Are you suffering from gum recession or tooth abrasion? This means you have to have your open area covered with a tooth-colored filling. This will help you from sensitivity.
  • Wear a nightguard if you grind your teeth at night.
  • For a fractured tooth, your dentist can only eliminate your sensitivity if your tooth is repaired correctly.

Here are just some of the reasons for tooth sensitivity. To know more details, visit one of our dentists, Village Park Family Dental. Call us at 281-376-4444 to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors.
