Sensitive teeth are a widely common condition seen mostly in people of twenty to forty-five years. Women are more likely to be prone to sensitive teeth when compared to men. It can start at any point in your life and can be pretty devastating to deal with in day to day life. Each tooth is protected by a layer of enamel that protects the dentine texture beneath. If this particular dentine texture is affected by the loss of enamel that covers it, then the tooth becomes sensitive.
Some of the common ways in which enamel is affected are listed below:
Sensitivity is experienced in several ways. You can experience sensitivity while eating the food of extreme temperatures, cold air brushing your teeth, or when having acidic foods or drinks. People with sensitive teeth are advised to brush the teeth regularly. Otherwise, the condition can worsen with time. Dental hygiene is extremely important for people suffering from sensitive teeth. If you are suffering from sensitive teeth, avoiding foods like cold ice cream or acidic drinks can also help in dealing with the situation.
Your dentist diagnoses the condition mainly by observing the symptoms and also, will determine the reason why it is happening. If the correct underlying reason is diagnosed, the condition can be handled with more care and safety. The affected tooth is treated with desensitizing products to relieve the symptoms. Fluoride gels and varnishes are also recommended for these patients. These particular products are painted onto the affected tooth in a gap of one or two weeks, as instructed by your dentist. Sensitive teeth are a condition that takes time to recover from. In some severe cases, a root-fill procedure is done by the dentist.
