Watching for Sensitive Tooth Signs

Posted .

Are you one of the 20 percent or more of Americans suffering every day from dental sensitivity? There are a couple things you can look at to find out; if you are suspicious that your teeth are sensitive, please contact us immediately.

You can detect whether you are suffering from tooth sensitivity by watching for its major symptoms. If you drink a hot or cold drink and sense only a little bit of sensitivity, you likely just need to brush your teeth a little more frequently; when you notice short, intense pain, you might have tooth sensitivity problems. Other signs include pain when brushing or touching the teeth, pain from sugar and pain from air blowing on your teeth.

Without care, dentin hypersensitivity can greatly impact a patient’s life. As tooth sensitivity is often a sign of gum disease, untreated pearly whites could fall out and cause difficulty chomping and speaking for the patient. In some cases, new dentin layers can develop to defend the pulp and roots of the chompers, but if this doesn’t happen in time, the complications of tooth sensitivity could be grave. We endorse seeking treatment for dentin hypersensitivity asap.
