Sensitive teeth, in the cold and in the heat, so as to cause not only discomfort but also pain. It is a problem that is very often not serious but it can undoubtedly be really a nuisance. In addition to temperature change, those with sensitive teeth can also suffer in response to chemical, osmotic and mechanical stimuli, so a too sweet foods or too salty as in brushing, too vigorous.
Among dentists we use the more technical term of dentinal hypersensitivity, defined as the sensation of discomfort, and sometimes pain, caused by the exposure of the teeth to physical stimuli of various kinds.
Sensitive teeth: causes
The causes can be pathological or not. In the first case, sensitive teeth may be due to incipient or advanced caries or in the presence of cracked teeth. If we are talking about non-pathological causes, then it can be a case of denudation of the roots of the teeth, perhaps as a consequence of gingival retraction from too aggressive brushing, or we are in the presence of hypersensitive people, therefore with a low pain threshold.
In both cases, it means to warn sharp and stinging pains, short but at the same time violent, when sweet, sour, hot or cold foods are ingested that inevitably come into contact with the teeth. If we do not eat anything but brush our teeth too vigorously, or using water at too low a temperature, we can still feel discomfort as even if we chew too "powerfully".
Sensitive teeth: remedies
Sensitive teeth remain sensitive but we can try to limit our suffering with some remedies also natural. Better if natural. Here are a few, recommended in this article.
Sensitive teeth: toothpastes
Also there choice of toothpastes it's important, let's not underestimate it. Here are two recommended but there are many on the market, dedicated to those with hypersensitivity to the teeth. "Aloedent”Is for sensitive teeth and delicate gums and it also helps prevent tooth decay, plaque, tartar and gum problems.
Another very effective product is the "Pasta del Capitano"In the ad hoc version for sensitive teeth, with organic mint.
Sensitive teeth: possible causes
You can be born with sensitive teeth but this characteristic can also be a consequence of one clumsy oral hygiene, with brushes with too hard bristles handled impetuously. There are also some toothpastes which, of bad quality, can even contain abrasive substances, some of the whitening ones, above all, they are at risk.
Those who misuse the dental floss it can become exaggeratedly sensitive and people suffering from gastric reflux or bulimia have high acidity in the mouth which leads to sensitive teeth. Other possible causes are the high consumption of acidic foods and drinks such as fruit, fruit juice, yogurt, cola, nighttime grinding and poor oral hygiene.
It happens that the layers of enamel and dentin thin and external stimuli on the teeth have extremely intense consequences because they reach the areas richest in blood vessels and nerve endings.
Sensitive teeth: gel
Instead of toothpastes, there are those who prefer to use gel products, with fluoride, specific for sensitive teeth, to spread two or three times a day on the teeth without rinsing. They are a good alternative to hydroxyapatite-based toothpastes, but there are those who, in cases of greater dental sensitivity, resort to professional interventions consisting in the application of fluorinated resins to seal the dentinal tubules.
Sensitive teeth after filling
It can happen that the teeth become normal sensitive after a filling. For example, when a tinted composite is applied and the teeth remain sensitive for a short period of time because a small amount of acid, which remains in the mouth and has this effect. If in a short time, however, the sensation does not disappear, it is worth checking what happened: it can also be there an ongoing inflammation and the pain remains.
