Some people naturally have more sensitive teeth than others.Dentine is the softer tooth layer that lies beneath the hard enamel surface.Once dentin is exposed, the microscopic pores called tubules that lead to the tooth nerve are left unprotected.Hot, cold, and sometimes sweet or acidic foods can trigger sensitivity/ pain.
Common causes of tooth sensitivity include-
- Gum recession
- Aggressive brushing of teeth
- Consuming too much acidic food and beverages
- Teeth grinding
- Tooth decay
- Physical injury to the tooth
- Recent dental procedure
Maintaining good oral hygiene using a soft brush reduces the chances of sensitivity. Schedule an appointment with your dentist so that he may find out the exact cause of sensitivity and treat it accordingly.
