Best way to get rid of Tooth senstivity

                 TOOTH SENSITIVITY

Number of people is affected by the tooth sensitivity. Thinning enamel and dentine exposure causes the pain of sensitive teeth. It becomes very difficult for a person who suffers from sensitivity to eat something hot and cold.
Actually tooth sensitivity is caused when the softer part of our tooth called “Dentine” is exposed. Dentine lies under the tooth enamel.
The dentin contains a large numbers of pores or tubes that run from the outside of the tooth to the nerve in the center. It is filled with fluid. When we eat something hot or cold, it causes change in the movement of fluid and this movement causes the nerve endings to react and causes a pain.

                            CAUSES OF SENSITIVITY

  • Acidic foods and beverages such as soda, tomato sauce, lemon, grapefruit and pickles can cause dentin exposure.


  • Grinding your teeth can also expose the dentin and cause sensitivity.


  • A chipped or cracked tooth can also expose the dentin and cause pain.


  • Chemicals found in teeth whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes.


  • An excessive build-up of plaque on our teeth can expose the dentin and cause sensitivity.

  • Due to some kind of gum disease.
