10 factors that can make your teeth sensitive Newington, CT

teeth sensitivity

Sharp and sudden pain or discomfort in your teeth when they are exposed to too hot, cold, sweet or sour condition is called tooth sensitivity. It  usually happens  when the tooth enamel gets worn down and gumline recedes exposing the underlying dentin.

According to Dr.Ranjitha Mukund, these  are the 10 factors that can cause sensitivity in your teeth:

  1. Use of hard bristled toothbrush can wear down enamel exposing dentin which leads to teeth sensitivity
  2. Dental diseases such as gingivitis/periodontitis can cause inflammation of gums resulting in exposure  of  roots of the teeth
  3. Harsh or prolonged brushing (abrasion)   can  lead to sensitivity
  4. Foods and drinks  with high acid content can  contribute to teeth sensitivity to a large extent
  5. Damaged or fractured teeth can cause bacteria to enter the pulp causing inflammation
  6. Tooth decay near the gumline can  lead to teeth sensitivity
  7. Teeth grinding  or bruxism can cause wearing down of enamel exposing dentin tissues
  8. Teeth whitening products can  contribute to sensitivity problems
  9. Long term use of mouthwashes  with acid content  can cause sensitivity
  10. Some dental procedures and processes such as teeth cleaning, root planning, crown placement can  make teeth sensitive.
