Common Causes of Teeth Sensitivity

Teeth sensitivity can be caused by several different factors, such as:

  • Tooth wear caused by using a hard-bristled toothbrush and brushing too aggressively

  • Tooth enamel erosion due to highly acidic foods and beverages

  • Tooth decay, old fillings that leak, and damaged teeth that irritate the nerve of your tooth

  • Plaque buildup causing gum disease that leaves your root surface exposed

  • Tooth grinding, also known as bruxism, leading to worn-down tooth enamel

  • Recent dental treatment, such as tooth restoration or scaling and cleaning, causing temporary sensitivity.

Dental Services that Can Address Teeth Sensitivity

Scale and Clean

Plaque and tartar buildup can cause gum disease, leading to receding gum tissues, exposed tooth roots, and sensitivity.

At Timberlands Dental Clinic, you can get a professional cleaning that will remove the plaque and tartar you can’t reach with brushing and flossing at home.

Dental Fillings

If a cavity or a broken tooth is causing the sensitivity, a filling may be an excellent treatment option to restore your tooth and relieve the pain.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Teeth Sensitivity

The most common signs of sensitive teeth are:

  • Sharp pain or toothache when consuming hot or cold foods or beverages
  • Sensitivity to cold air
  • Sensitivity to touching your teeth
  • Pain or sensitivity while brushing or flossing
  • Sensitivity to sweet and acidic foods and drinks
  • Pain or discomfort when touching your teeth

If you have sensitive teeth, avoid:

  • Brushing too hard
    Doing this causes the enamel on your teeth to wear away and increases sensitivity.

  • Consuming acidic foods and drinks
    They can further erode your enamel, making your teeth more sensitive.

  • Eating or drinking sweet foods and drinks
    This can increase the risk of tooth decay, especially if the sensitivity is caused by cavities.

  • Consuming very cold or hot drinks and food
    Temperature variations can trigger teeth sensitivity and cause more pain.

Yes, you should still brush your teeth twice a day, even with sensitivity. However, using a toothbrush with soft bristles and toothpaste for sensitive teeth would be best.

Avoid using abrasive toothpaste, as it can further damage your teeth. Remember to use gentle strokes when brushing them as well.

Here are simple ways you can manage this problem at home:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and desensitising toothpaste:
    This can help protect your teeth and reduce sensitivity.
  • Practise good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing and using mouth rinses: 
    Doing so will help remove the buildup of plaque and bacteria that causes your teeth to become sensitive.
  • Avoid acidic, sweet, cold, and hot foods and drinks to not aggravate the sensitivity: 
    If you can’t avoid them altogether, try to limit your intake.
  • Consider wearing a mouth guard if you have a habit of tooth grinding: 
    This device can protect your teeth from wear that can cause sensitivity over time.
  • Make regular visits to your dentist: 
    They can help to identify the cause of your pain and suggest the ideal course of treatment.
