What is tooth sensitivity and why do I have it?

Tooth sensitivity is tooth discomfort caused by something hot or cold, sweet or sour, or by cold air. The most common symptom is sharp, sudden or shooting pain. Several reasons could cause tooth sensitivity: We have listed some common reasons below: * Wear down or Abrasion of tooth: Brushing too hard or using a hard-bristled toothbrush over a significant time period can cause the dentin to be exposed. This causes gum recessions. At Dr. Tooth Dental Studio, we teach each one of our patients the right tooth-brushing technique so this can be prevented. * Recession of the gums: When gums move away from a tooth because due to conditions like periodontal disease, the root surface becomes exposed. This exposure gives rise to tooth sensitivity. * Gum disease: Gum disease may cause the loss of supporting ligaments, that exposes the root surfaces of the teeth that leads to sensitivity. * Teeth grinding/clenching (Bruxism): Grinding or clenching may wear down the enamel. Also, the excessive forces of grinding can lead to pulpal inflammation that result in sensitivity. * Tooth whitening products include baking soda and peroxide that cause major tooth sensitivity. Do not overuse such products as teeth whitening is a specialized process. * Cavities (Caries): Cavities result in the degradation of tooth layers thus causing sensitivity in the tooth.
