When your teeth get exposed to hot or cold temperature that creates severe discomfort and pain, they have sensitivity problem. Such discomfort makes it hard for people to enjoy their favorite foods. But not to worry anymore!
Special toothpastes can help to reduce this kind of sensitivity-related issues.
How a sensitive toothpaste reduces tooth sensitivity?
When the tooth enamel gets damaged or thinned due to gum diseases or erosion, it causes the underlying dentine to get exposed to extreme conditions such as hot or cold liquids, extremely sweet foods, etc. These extreme conditions transmit sensory stimuli to the brain, creating a high level of sensitivity.
Toothpastes designed to reduce tooth sensitivity contain ingredients that work by blocking the tubules in the dentine. The nerve endings in the tubules are blocked from being exposed to external acidic conditions thus reducing the pain stimuli. Regular use of sensitive toothpastes is found to be highly effective in controlling sensitivity. You may start noticing the difference after a week, which significantly improves with time.
In case the sensitivity problem does not vanish even after using such toothpastes, it is always recommended to visit your dentist immediately.
