By: | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments: 0 | August 26th, 2015

Probably many of you confronted easy pains or dental discomfort when you have consumed hot foods or cold drinks. This discomfort and pains were caused by the fact that you have sensitive teeth.

The sensitive teeth are the cause of the exposion of the middle layer of the tooth, called dentina. Usually, this layer is covered by dental enamel and cementum.

The main factors that cause dental sensitivity are:

aggressive brushing of the teeth or the use of a too rough toothbrush;

– gum affections which are caused by poor dental hygiene;

– not treating the caries;

– gnashing of teeth;

– frequent consuming of foods and drinks that contain acid;

Of course, when you feel that your teeth start being sensitive to certain foods or drinks, the first thing you have to do is to address the dentist.

But if you do not have the possibility to address the dentist, then you can diminish the dental sensitivity through:

– daily brushing of the teeth and using of the dental floss for their cleaning;

– using of the toothpaste and toothbrush that are specially recommended for the sensitive teeth;

– consulting the family doctor for verifying the causes of teeth gnashing, most often this is a nervous problem.

Doctor’s advice:
