Tooth Sensitivity

Post Graduate Fellowship In Micro Dentistry, Esthetic Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon

Hello friends, my name is Dr Aishna Sharma, today I am going to discuss about the topic that is very common and in general everyone suffers from it and that is, tooth sensitivity.

Tooth sensitivity is basically any kind of pain due to extremes (hot and cold) food or drinks or even with a blow of air. Now first of all going deep into this topic you musyt understand the tooth structure, that is a tooth it consists of three layers;

  • The outermost layer enamel, that is considered to be the hardest substance on the eart, other than the diamond.
  • Now, after enamel comes dentin. Dentin is considered to be the softer substance.
  • It has tubules in it. Tubules that starts from the outer layer of the dentin and ends up to the pulp.

This dentin and inside dentin is the pulp. The pulp or the nerve tissue, this nerve tissue consist if sensations, and with whatever we eat whatever we have all the sensation is passed through the nerves and it reaches through the dentin and then it reaches to the enamel. Now whenever we have sensitivity it means that the tooth structure is lost because of many reasons. Now first and foremost reason is the loss of gum tissue. The loss of gum tissue can occur when we take some very acidic things like pepsi, coke or any aerated drink. So in that case our gum tissues are soft in nature, that gets lost. So when it gets lost the lower part of the tooth that is the root of the tooth, it gets exposed and it is sensitive in nature so obviously you will have sensitivity in that area. The sensitivity is not in the tooth structure it is in the root area. Now, other reason of sensitivity is decay. Decay is the most common.

When you will have decay?

First and foremost you will get to know about decay when your food will get lost when the food will get lost only in the outer surface of the tooth, that is the enamel, you won’t have any sensitivity you will just have the complain of getting the food lost, but when it reaches the dentin, you will definitely have sensitivity. The first sensitivity you are going to have is cold, after that hot and after that when it is very near to the nerves, you will have sensitivity to sweets. Now, this is how this process of decay stats from sensitivity and ends up in pain because when you reach the nerve, you will experience pain. Other reason of sensitivity is fracture, when the tooth gets fractured, so obviously in fractured case also the dentin is getting exposed and even at times the pulp or the nerve tissue gets exposed. So all the sensation, whatever you eat or drink gets passed on to the tooth directly to the inside of the tooth directly and you will have sensation of hot and cold, even to sweets.

Now, what is the treatment line for tooth sensitivity?

 The first and foremost line and the most common treatment line people do at home is the desensitizing paste, nowadays there are so many advertisements coming on national television. So, desensitizing paste is something that you have to use regularly and slowly you will attain the result. But, ya if you don’t get results with the desensitizing paste, you have to come to the clinic. To the doctor’s place and you have to get the treated by the fluorited toothpaste that the doctor will recommend. Even after that if you are not getting relieved, then you haveto go for the filling that filling is medicated filling. Even at times if it is your bad luck that you don’t even get relief with the filling then you have to go for the root canal only after that the sensitive tooth will be relieved.

For further detail on this topic, you can call me and chat with me. There is live chat option also on librate.com and you can visit our clinic that is Rohini Dental Care and it is in sector 31 Gurgaon. Rest, you can get from the Lybrate.

I'm struggling with gum disease. My gum is leaving my tooth.And also smelly breath

A.C.C.I - Accredited and Certified Course in Implantology, MDS - Pediatric & Preventive Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Jammu
Dear, There has to be a cause for your gums receeding - aggressive brushing, clenching habit, calculus (tartar) deposits, traumatic bite or irregular teeth to name the most common. It will be prudent to reach a possible cause of your problem on a clinical examination and then treat the cause. Further loss of the same would be stopped. Once it becomes stable - that is there is no further recession of your gums we can think of ways to get them back up to the levels possible.

Normally spaces between the teeth can be treated and those gaps can be closed with the help of orthodontic braces. As you said, if your teeth are small or underdeveloped, after check up we can exactly say what exact treatment you require. In healthy dentition there is no need of replacement of teeth, we can treat it accordingly with advance treatment aids.

Few things to do on daily basis - Daily exercise

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Few things to do on daily basis - Daily exercise
You brush your teeth every day; exercise is equally important for your daily routine. Turn off the tv or computer, and get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day.

To work your heart, it's got to be aerobic exercise. You've got lots of options: walking, jogging, biking, rowing machine, elliptical machine, swimming. But don't feel like you have to be an athlete. Walking is great exercise. Get 10 minutes here and there during the day. It all counts.

Start with something simple, like parking in the far corner of the parking lot -- so you get those extra steps to the door. Take the stairs one or two flights instead of the elevator.

If you take public transportation, get off one stop early and walk the rest. Get out at lunch to walk. Or walk with your significant other or your spouse after work. You'll get a bonus relaxation and stress reduction.

Visit or search for ssohm on internet for more tips and information on various diseases.

Stop the habitof spitting. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical procedures. You may consult me in person too. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

I have pain in my jaw joint in front and below the ear from long time. May I know what is the problem? Why this happens?

BDS

I have pain in my jaw joint in front and below the ear from long time. May I know what is the problem? Why this happens?
Hi lybrate-user, There could be two reasons behind the pain you are experiencing. Either you have a decayed tooth (not necessarily visible with naked eye) since a long time which is causing non-specific pain in the jaw, radiating to the ear; or you you have a hyper-mobile joint (temporomandibular joint- which connects lower jaw to the skull). In case of a decayed tooth, it is ,quite likely that you may have to undergo an RCT. However, in case of a problem with the joint, you may be required to take some muscle relaxants and adopt an soft-diet regime for a few days, to give the joint some rest. Kindly consult me privately on Lybrate for more specific answers. Take care.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

Dear lybrate user, space left empty by removing a tooth is not good because it leads to bone loss in that area. Also, the neighboring teeth and the teeth in the opposing arch also begin to show slight movement towards the empty space which disturbs the normal relation between upper and lower teeth. You are still at a growing age. Don't think of extracting your tooth and leaving the gap empty.

Hello lybtrate user, if this yellowish stain since your childhood days then, I guess the stains are internal and cannot be removed by ultrasonic scaling. In cases like yours we recommend veneer which are thin ceramic layers which looks exactly like a normal white teeth and are placed over the dicolored teeth. You can visit your nearby dentist and ask for this option. Fruits and vegetable will not remove this yellow color of your teeth, it will improve the health of your gums. Hope this helps.

Severe dental pain in seemingly healthy tooth should be properly evaluated. Patient history of past illness is important as simply chicken pox might affect your healthy teeth and cause severe pain in otherwise healthy tooth.

Please get an x ray done of that area and find out the reason why the pain is still there. It may be related to gums or any cavity in the nearby tooth.
