Sensitivity teeth, also known as dentin hypersensitivity, is a condition where there is pain in response to stimuli such as hot or cold foods and drinks, sweets, and even just the act of chewing. Throughout a healthy life, we all experience sensitivity but for some it can be so severe that it affects their ability to eat or drink. Dentin hypersensitivity is something that we can’t prevent or cure but that doesn’t mean we can’t manage it. I wrote in my previous article that the reason I went to the dentist was to fix my sensitive teeth. In the course of booking and appointment and undergoing after procedural care, I did some research on sensitive teeth in other to fully understand my dilemma. I decided to share what I was able to learn both from the web, and from the dentist.

The most important thing you can do to maintain your teeth clean and healthy, keep the enamel smooth, and avoid bad breath is to follow basic hygiene habits. To avoid excessive wear on the enamel and gum recession, choose a soft toothbrush that fits your mouth properly.

However, even if you practice good dental hygiene, you may still experience sensitive teeth and need to look into other possibilities. Dentists are qualified to diagnose and treat tooth sensitivity. I conducted some research on this one because I was interested as well. Because your tooth nerve is exposed, you will experience sensitivity on your teeth.

The tooth nerve is protected by an enamel coating, which wears away over time, exposing the nerve. This is why it reacts to cold so strongly. It's similar to what happens when you spend too much time in the sea. When you spend too much time in the water, the skin on your fingers becomes extremely sensitive. The easiest approach to prevent this from happening is to avoid chewing ice cubes or drinking cold beverages. Brushing your teeth with cold water in the morning can sometimes be aggravating.

If a tooth is damaged or sensitive for whatever reason, it is very likely that it will be sensitive to hot or cold. The causes of tooth sensitivity and treatment options listed here will assist you in finding the best remedy for sensitive teeth.

A dental filling, cavity, or root canal therapy on a tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay might produce teeth sensitivity over time. Sensitivity occurs when the pulp inside the tooth dies as a result of tissue exposure in a cavity or after root canal therapy. The pulp is exposed when dentists drill out decaying tissues, causing discomfort and sensitivity to hot, cold, and pressure. Teeth can become sensitive in one of two ways: either solely to cold or to both hot and cold temperatures, as well as pressure.

Sensitivity to cold or hot food or drinks can be caused by any form of tooth movement. The most common reason is a tooth that has become exposed owing to gum recession. It can also be caused by abnormalities with the tooth's structure or gingivitis, a type of gum disease. Teeth can also become insensitive if they are exposed to specific products or procedures, such dental bleaching, laser whitening, or excessive brushing.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, mouthwashes containing sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) are also known to promote tooth sensitivity.” Most toothpastes contain this component, which is normally indicated under the ingredients section, so read it carefully.


I'm going to highlight how you can care for sore and sensitive teeth today. Sensitive teeth is a common ailment that is often overlooked, although it is really unpleasant. By the way, based on my investigation, this is what I was able to come up with. If you have sensitive teeth, you should go to the dentist.

  • Begin brushing your teeth with a sensitive-tooth toothpaste. Use a toothbrush with a gentle bristle. "Sensodyne," "Pronamel," or "Panadol Sensitive," according to dentists.

  • Mouthwash can help to alleviate the pain and cure the problem of sensitive teeth. Mouthwashes like "Acidocherve" or "Tandyl" are recommended by dentists.

  • You can also relieve sensitivity with home remedies.If you consume caffeine-containing beverages, wait at least one hour before brushing your teeth. Warm, salty water is also wonderful. Before spitting, gargle with a warm salt solution and leave it in your mouth for a few minutes.

Summarily,  the most common causes of are; Excessive brushing causing damage to the enamel. Cavities that expose the dentin inside the tooth, Gum infections such as gingivitis or periodontitis, Tooth decay or dental fillings. 

Stay Healthy Always.

I am very troubled about my left upper molars. Although there is no decay or tooth movement, there is hot - cold sensitivity due to sensitivity. No matter how much I procrastinate, I guess I have to go to the dentist.
