Sensitive Teeth Treatment
In the recent times, we started to hear the word “Sensitivity” and we know it is related to teeth. We found various toothbrushes and toothpaste in the market relating to sensitivity healing or Sensitive teeth treatment. Let us discuss this condition called sensitivity in detail. The first step in Sensitive teeth treatment is to incorporate good habits into our daily oral health routine.
Sensitivity happens when our dentin starts to expose. Actually, dentin is a second layer of our teeth. In some cases, this will start to expose. The reason for sensitivity is that the dentin contains small channels named tubules, which is directly connected with the nerves. When sensitivity occurs the nerves start to get contact with the mouth structures.It generates bacterias and there will be certain stimuli which result in pain.
When sensitivity starts people feel heavy pain. They can’t control the pain. They need to skip meals or the pain may result in headaches too. If you have sensitive teeth then you need to avoid certain things to control the pain.
- Eating cold food or drinking cold water will initiate the pain.
- Eating hot food or drinking hot beverages may increase the pain.
- The sugary food items will contribute heavy pain to sensitive teeth.
- The highly sour food items also worsen the situation.
- If you are surrounded by cold air and if you start to inhale it, the pain increases. The cold air also gives you the irritation.
