Sensitivity of teeth: causes and treatment

Hyperesthesia or tooth sensitivity is an unpleasant feature that many people suffer from. They are forced to abandon frequent consumption of sweet and sour, should be very careful when trying cold and hot foods because of discomfort or even pain. We propose you to find out the reasons, prerequisites and ways to get rid of this problem.

 There are three stages of hyperesthesia. At first, pain arises because of the temperature stimuli, with the second reaction appears because of chemical pathogens, on the third stage it hurts even after touching the tooth tissue.

If a person’s teeth are vulnerable, a sharp pain usually appears during eating.

 The main causes of hypersensitivity are:

 – Caries, because of which the enamel becomes thinner and there are microcracks in it

 – Exposure of the necks of teeth due to periodontitis

 – Erasing the teeth due to the use of a too stiff brush or improper cleaning of the teeth by too intense movements

 – Erosion of enamel due to the use of products with a high content of acidic substances


 People with sensitive teeth should pay great attention to personal dental hygiene. You can prefer fluoride-containing mouth conditioners, special toothpastes with a high content of fluoride, which not only are better suited for people with hyperesthesia, but also provide additional protection against caries.

 Any of these or similar remedies for hyperesthesia should be recommended by the dentist, supplementing them with a course of treatment. Therefore, when one is faced with the problem of tooth sensitivity, he should not rely only on special hygiene products, traditional medicine or the experience of acquaintances. Remember that only consultation with a specialist will help to determine the cause of the disease and choose the appropriate method for its elimination.

 Take care of your teeth and remember that only with a serious and considerate attitude to oral health you can get rid of this problem and pain!
