Frequently Asked Questions About
In some cases, tooth sensitivity can indicate a serious dental problem. It is often a symptom of tooth decay, advanced gum disease, cracked teeth, or bruxism.
It’s essential to seek professional advice if it persists, as it can lead to further dental complications. Your dentist can determine the ideal course of treatment based on your assessment and needs.
The most common sign of tooth sensitivity is pain or discomfort when eating or drinking hot or cold foods and drinks. Other symptoms can include pain when brushing or flossing teeth and consuming acidic or sugary foods and drinks.
Here are some tips to help you cope with sensitive teeth:
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush gently.
- Avoid foods and drinks that are too hot, cold, acidic or sweet.
- Use desensitising toothpaste.
- Contact a qualified dentist if the problem persists.
- Continue to practise good oral hygiene, such as brushing twice daily and flossing regularly.
- Visit your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
Temporary tooth sensitivity can often be managed with some simple, proven home remedies. These include:
- Rinsing your mouth with a saltwater solution.
- Brushing with toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
- Using fluoride and desensitising products available from your dentist or pharmacy.
However, if the sensitivity continues and is due to an underlying dental condition, consult your dentist. They can determine the cause of your condition and help provide you with relief.
