What Is Tooth Sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity or ‘dentin hypersensitivity’ is a condition where you experience pain and discomfort in your teeth due to hot or cold stimuli. You may either feel the discomfort in one tooth or all of your teeth. Remember the feeling you get when you bite into something very cold or drink something very hot? The tingling and weird sensation in your teeth is due to teeth sensitivity.

  • Cold drinks and cold foods
  • Cold air during severe winters

Tooth Sensitivity Treatments

You are not alone when it comes to dealing with sensitive teeth! We have the solution you are seeking. Here are the easy ways out of this unpleasant problem.

Desensitize Your Teeth

Desensitizing toothpastes contain substances that block the sensation being transmitted from your tooth’s surface to the nerve. You will need multiple uses of this toothpaste before you can see the difference in your sensitivity.

Fluoride Gels

Visit the dentist for a fluoride gel treatment. It involves the dentist applying a high concentration of fluoride on the teeth. This helps reduce the chances of cavities and improve your teeth's health.

Adding a Crown or Bonding

You may experience sensitivity when your tooth is open and exposed. The nerve below may be extra sensitive due to this exposure. In such cases, a bonding resin or a crown is applied to the tooth and the sensitive root surface is covered.
