Whenever you have something too hot or too cold, the pain felt in teeth is known as sensitivity. While you can experience sensitive teeth any time or any age, most people experience them after getting a filling, or when they use harsh toothbrush or toothpaste.
A survey concluded that at least one in eight patients suffer from sensitive teeth problem. It’s a matter of concern as it affects the way a person eats, drinks, and life in general. Sensitive teeth happen when the dentin in teeth gets exposed or because of receding gums which exposes dentin layer. The enamel once gone is not replenished.
If you experience teeth sensitivity persistently with no relief, it’s time to see the dentist as they may perform a sealant procedure which will cover the teeth with a thin material.
Fruits such as lemons, oranges, and grapefruit are acidic in nature and can rip off the enamel in long run.
Teeth grinding, using harsh toothpastes, cracks and decays as well as some dental procedures can also lead to sensitive teeth.
