Reasons & Remedy for tooth senstivity

Reasons & Remedy for tooth senstivity
On drinking cold water or a sip of tea or coffee makes you uneasy or eating ice-cream or yoghurt is a nightmare, you may have a common problem known as “sensitive teeth.”

Various causes of sensitivity in teeth include:

1. Forceful brushing of teeth – it is the most common cause of tooth sensitivity. It causes thinning of the protective layer on our teeth that is enamel. Enamel protects our teeth against insult from food or fluids we take. Loss of enamel leads to sensitivity of teeth

Remedy:
• Gentle brushing of teeth
• Use soft bristle brush
• Change brush after 3- 6 months ( as the bristles wear away)
• Use little toothpaste ( toothpaste has abrasive particles which causes
wear away of enamel)
• Do brushing in up-down movement


2. Tooth decay – caries in tooth leads to tooth sensitivity. Caries remove the protective enamel layer exposing dentine layer to food and fluids. Dentine carries nerves which causes sensitivity

Remedy: Treatment involves removal of tooth decay and placement of
protective barrier on dentine that is a filling material

3. Old tooth fillings – over a period of time fillings may crack or break or get removed which leads to sensitivity.

Remedy: Change of filling in tooth

4. Exposed tooth roots- as a result of aggressive tooth brushing, gum recession and gum disease. It causes tooth sensitivity.

Remedy
• Use soft bristle brush
• Visit your dentist for gum disease treatment

5. Plaque and calculus - the purpose of brushing is to remove plaque that forms after eating food. An excessive build-up of plaque can cause your enamel to wear away. Again, your teeth can become more sensitive as they lose their enamel protection.

Remedy: The solution is to practice good daily dental care and visit your
dentist for cleanings every six months.

6. Habit of eating acidic foods -fruits like lemon, sweet lime, pickles and tomato juice contains acid which can dissolve enamel of teeth. Frequent use of acidic food causes tooth sensitivity.

7. Habit of tooth-grinding – grinding also cause tooth sensitivity due to loss of enamel.


Tooth sensitivity is treatable. You must have seen toothpaste made for sensitive teeth. However, toothpaste can only help limited no. of patient’s suffering from tooth sensitivity.

If your sensitivity is extreme and persists no matter what you do, please visit your dentist for an oral examination. Visit to dental specialist can determine the most likely cause of your tooth sensitivity and the best solution for your particular condition. I Hope this article will help you.

Since last one month the saliva in mouth tastes very sweet. Is it symptom of diabetes or any other problem.

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS

That can be due to food you take either carbs or sugar intake which increases the sugar level of saliva this leads to increased caries risk brush after every meal

Hi orthodontic treatment is time consuming it will take around 1yr to 1.5yrs for completion of the treatment whereas cosmetic treatment is not time consuming it will take around 15 days to 25 days maximum. If you are having only midline diastema problem then you can go for cosmetic treatment. Cosmetic procedure wont be harmful but you will have dental caps on your teeth so only thing you cant bite any thing hard from that teeth.Thank you

Using a hard-bristled toothbrush can harm

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Using a hard-bristled toothbrush can harm
A hard-bristled toothbrush coupled with an aggressive brushing technique can cause irreversible damage to your gums. Use a soft toothbrush and gently brush your teeth at a 45-degree angle, in a circular motion. Using a back-and-forth, sawing motion causes the gums to recede, and can expose the root of the tooth, making teeth extremely sensitive.

To avoid infection and reduce pain in a first-degree burn on the tongue: rinse the area well with cool water for a few minutes. Remove any dirt or particles that may be on the burn. Wet a clean cloth with cool water and hold it on top of the burn. Suck on ice chips or a popsicle to soothe the pain. Gargle with cool water or salt water. Avoid warm or hot liquids, which could irritate the burn. Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and inflammation. Sprinkle a few grains of sugar on the tongue to relieve pain.

Hi, it wil require 12 - 18 months of treatment with braces. If space is between all the front teeth then it is a simple braces case but diagnosis becomes highly important here, if space is only between two front teeth. In that case than you might be having upper frenum problem or sometimes their is an extra supernumary teeth in between your front two teeth that does not come out and with pressure causes the condition, in that case first get the cause of your condition first checked and then go ahead with braces treatment for a beautiful smile.

Yellowish teeth can be due to dirt which goes away with cleaning by dentist. The other type is enamel weakness which might need special treatment like veneering with composite or ceramic crowns.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

This condition is called mouth ulcer or apthae. Apthae can be there due to several reasons, like indigestion, constipation, deficiency of vitamin b12. Generally, this can be cured, just by few managing steps, like taking easily digestive food, take food, eat at least one papaya daily, avoid spicy, fatty, oily food, and taking b-complex capsules. If then also this doesn't cure in 10 days please consult.
