Sensitive Teeth

Dentist, Mumbai
Sensitive Teeth

Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee sometimes a painful experience for you? Does brushing or flossing make you wince occasionally? If so, you may have sensitive teeth.


Possible causes include:

  • Tooth decay (cavities)

  • Fractured teeth

  • Worn fillings

  • Gum disease

  • Worn tooth enamel

  • Exposed tooth root


In healthy teeth, a layer of enamel protects the crowns of your teeth—the part above the gum line. Under the gum line a layer called cementum protects the tooth root. Underneath both the enamel and the cementum is dentin. 


Dentin is less dense than enamel and cementum and contains microscopic tubules (small hollow tubes or canals). When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel or cementum these tubules allow heat and cold or acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth. Dentin may also be exposed when gums recede. The result can be hypersensitivity.


Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments:

  • Desensitizing toothpaste. This contains compounds that help block transmission of sensation from the tooth surface to the nerve, and usually requires several applications before the sensitivity is reduced.

  • Fluoride gel. An in-office technique which strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the transmission of sensations.

  • A crown, inlay or bonding. These may be used to correct a flaw or decay that results in sensitivity.

  • Surgical gum graft. If gum tissue has been lost from the root, this will protect the root and reduce sensitivity.

  • Root canal. If sensitivity is severe and persistent and cannot be treated by other means, your dentist may recommend this treatment to eliminate the problem.

Proper oral hygiene is the key to preventing sensitive-tooth pain. Ask your dentist if you have any questions about your daily oral hygiene routine or concerns about tooth sensitivity.

Dear mam, sir. I have pain in teeth and it's very badly pain, so please give me a better solution.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
The type of treatment you have for toothache 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 is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache 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 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.

Doctor I have some communication problem due to uncontrollable saliva generated in my mouth. So others can't hear my words clearly. And I can't speak some words also. How can control saliva?

Dentist, Ghaziabad
Speak slowly. Hold a clove or elaichi in it mouth initially and suckle on a toffee slowly you will be trained to limit is saliva. Also show a dentist to correct the underlying cause of access saliva.

Hello, visit a orthodontist and get it checked. Gap in between teeth can be filled by orthodontic treatment. It is safe and conservative treatment. The duration of treatment may be 1 1/2- 2 years depending upon the case, dentist and the locality of the clinic. It can cost you around 25,000- 40,000/-

I brush my teeth twice a day but I have noticed that my teeth colour has become yellow which was not the case earlier. What should I do?

MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Amravati
If you are brushing very vigorously, then due to excessive friction, there is loss of enamel. When the enamel layer of the teeth is thinned, teeth start appearing yellow due to dentin, the inner layer. Brush using soft toothbrush and clean all areas in 2 minutes.

Hello, for yellow teeth you need to visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly. Your original teeth can be replaced by an Implant or Fixed partial denture (bridges)

Sometimes there are some fafola grew in side my mouth. After 3-4 days it become clear automatically. Is there any solution.

Dentist, Bangalore
It looks like you have problem of ulcers. There are so many causes of mouth ulcers like- -stress or tissue injury is thought to be the cause of simple mouth ulcers. -certain foods, including citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables (such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes and strawberries), can trigger a mouth ulcer. -sometimes a sharp tooth surface also trigger mouth ulcers. -some cases of complex mouth ulcers are caused by an underlying health condition, such as an impaired immune system; nutritional problems, such as vitamin b-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as coeliac disease and crohn's disease. -when you first quit smoking, you may develop more mouth ulcers than normal, but this is temporary. Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take'becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief.

I have a thick layer of plaque (may be) in front teeth low jaw .it is enough thick that its not cleaning .today some part get broke out nd came out like stone. It can b hereditary coz same problem is with my mummy teeth What is it? How it will cure.

Dentist, Pune
First of all ,i want to say tht plaque ir calculus s not something genetic, it s due to the sheer negligience on your part. Poor oral hygiene s because of improper tooth brushing. Visit to the dentist and get cleaning of teeth done (scaling). On your part, you have to do twice brushing followed by mouthwash and glossing once a week. Do not forget to rinse after every meals.

My teeth are yellow. In the corner of the teeth thre is white and bad smelling things which is not removed very well thr .

Dentist, Gurgaon
this is calculus about which you told us. it gets accumulated between and around the teeth causing gum infection and bad breath. if not taken care, causes bleeding gums. visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth. start warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day. ask for polishing also, this will help in improving the colour of your teeth.

Try to save a knocked out tooth: Place it in milk and seek dental advice immediately.
If tissues are preserved the tooth can be replaced in the socket.
