Sensitivity in teeth. Please help.

Ask Free Question
Hi, Sensitivity in teeth is a major problem that the people are facing these days especially in winters. You can use a sensitive toothpaste by applying it directly on all your teeth with your finger (esp the ones which are more sensitive), leave it for five minutes & then brush with the same. But knowing the cause of sensitivity is very important. You should consult your dentist for any cuts or abrasions onto the tooth surface which are leading to sensitivity.

Toothache is usually caused due to decay in the tooth which is deep enough to reach the pulp where the nerve tissue are present. I would advise you to visit a nearby dentist and get intraoral radiograph done to see the extent of damage. Usually in such cases root canal therapy needs to be done to relieve the pain.

Try breathing from nose rather than mouth. During day time also you can practice breathing from nose. Habit removing appliance can be used such as oral screen can be used. So go for proper consultation and plan accordingly.

Bad breathe could be due to other reasons also like gastritis or gastrointestinal conditions. As you said dry mouth. Dry mouth could be due to mouth breathing at night due to nasal blockage ultimately bad breathe. So go step by step for cure. Exercise properly to relieve your nasal symptoms and try and stop breathing from mouth. You could go for consultation with an ENT or laryngologist. You shoul take drugs for proper salivation but to some limited extent. Try retaining body fluid by drinking water and juices. Get your full body check up for vital organs like kidney liver thyroid heart etc. Go for a gastroentrologist for gastric gases which also emit bad odour due to nitogenous gases or sulfur gases. Do not panic. You are perfectly alright. If you care you should take care.

Our teeth is naturally yellowish in colour (bright white teeth is misconception) surface deposits, if present, can make teeth look more yellowish and can be cleared with scaling and polishing. If your still unhappy then bleaching will help in whitening the teeth.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. Kindly consult a physician & dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Toothpaste and medicines are not of much help in this condition. When you eat cold things and suffer from severe pain then your tooth or teeth may need an rct to be done. If required crown (capping). So rct is only answer for your tooth which is too much sensitive to cold. Rest your dentist will take an xray and decide an appropriate treatment.

What habits can wreck my teeth?

Certified Implantologist, BDS

Crunching, Sucking, and Sipping You slurp down an ice-cold soda or iced tea and then crunch, crunch, crunch the leftover ice. What's the harm? The brittleness and cold temperature of ice cubes can actually cause teeth to fracture. They can cause microscopic cracks in the surface of the enamel, which could lead to bigger dental problems over time. Crushed ice is less harmful than bigger cubes, but it still doesn't get the blessing of most dentists. Right up there with ice cubes are popcorn kernels, which can also put undue stress on a tooth and cause it to fracture. Some people keep the pits of fruit such as peaches, apricots, and plums in their mouth to suck on and then crunch on. Sipping sugary soda throughout the day is another bad habit, research suggests. The constant exposure to sweet and acidic beverages can foster tooth decay. Be mindful of these practices when you eat or drink. Switch to crushed ice in drinks and when eating snacks eat something that’s healthier to chew, such as baby carrots. Sip soda through a straw to minimize soda exposure to your teeth. Be sure the straw is positioned toward the back of the mouth, not resting against your teeth.Whether you grind your teeth during the day, at night, or both day and night, it wears them down. Although teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety, it is more likely caused by an abnormal bite or missing or crooked teeth. Your dentist may suggest wearing a mouth guard for teeth grinding at night. Custom models made by your dentist cost more than over-the-counter ones, but they generally fit better and work better, too. Sometimes, it helps simply to be aware that you are grinding your teeth. If it is caused by stress, consider an exercise program or counseling. You may also want to try cutting back on foods and drinks that contain caffeine; reduce or avoid alcohol consumption; don't chew on pencils or anything else that isn't food; if you notice that you clench or grind your teeth during the day, position the tip of your tongue between your teeth to train your jaw muscles to relax; and, relax your jaw muscles at night by holding a warm washcloth against your cheek, in front of the earlobe.Some people think the firmer the toothbrush, the better. This isn’t so, especially for older adults. With age, the gums push back and the roots of the teeth become exposed, often increasing sensitivity. The root is covered with cementum, which is worn away more easily than enamel. A brush with too-firm bristles may irritate the gums and lead to sensitive teeth.

Brush twice a day, keep tooth problems away: brushing twice a day removes the tiny left out food particles from the mouth and keeps it fresher and cleaner.
