Hello sir, I am facing sensitive tooth problem since last 4 days what I should do?

5 Doctors Answered
Teeth sensitivity is a result of loss of outer most layer (enamel) of teeth. That can be due to: - tooth grinding - acidic beverages (such as soda) that cause enamel erosion and dentin exposure. - brushing with a very abrasive toothpaste, brushing incorrectly and/or brushing more than three times a day could result in a loss of enamel. - a chipped or fractured tooth may expose the dentin. Here are few steps to avoid sensitivity of teeth: - practice good oral hygiene. - use a sensitivity toothpaste like sensodyne. - don't brush too hard. - use a softer toothbrush. - take care while consuming acidic foods. - use fluoridated dental products. - avoid grinding your teeth. - see your dentist regularly for professional tooth cleaning, dental care recommendations and advice on treating your sensitive teeth.
Hello, sensitivity is mainly due to loss of enamel or gingival recession, in your age enamel loss is seen less. Gingival recession can be the cause of it. Gingival recession is lowering down of gingiva due to deposits ie plaque and tartar. You should under go a scaling. And use desensitivity tooth paste for some time.
U may use thermosea ra tooth paste twice daily.
Kindly brush your teeth twice daily using thermokind f toothpaste for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique. Visit your dentist to find out the exact reason for sensitivity. It may be because of caries or attrition ie eroding of enamel from the teeth. Whatever may be the reason for sensitivity kindly get the required treatment done.
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. 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.
