Pain from sensitive teeth is not always constant, it can come and go. Constant pain could be a sign of a more serious problem. It is important to discuss your symptoms with your dentist to determine the cause and proper treatment.
In health teeth, porous tissue called dentin is protected by your gums and by your teeth’s hard enamel.
Microscopic holes in the dentin, called tubules, connect to the nerve, triggering pain when irritated by certain foods and beverages.
Dentin can become exposed by receding gums, fractured or chipped teeth, clenching or grinding your teeth, abrasion from improper brushing on erosion due to the aging process.
Depending on the diagnosis, your dentist may recommend one or more of the following treatments to relieve the symptoms of sensitive teeth:
- a soft bristle toothbrush
- a fluoride rinse or gel
- a desensitizing toothpaste
Tooth enamel is hard, yet porous. Plaque on the surface of your teeth can produce acids that seep into the pores (rods) of the enamel and break down its internal structure. Plaque is a sticky, colorless deposit of bacteria that is constantly forming on the tooth’s surface.
The process of breakdown is called demineralization which can create a weak spot on the surface of the tooth that may become a cavity if left untreated.
Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by slowing the breakdown of enamel and speeding up the remineralization process. The new enamel/crystals that form are harder, larger, and more resistant to the acid produced by the plaque.
Common sources of fluoride are fluoridated drinking water, toothpaste, and mouth rinse. Your dentist may recommend a high concentration of a daily fluoride gel.
Since plaque begins forming on teeth 4-12 hours after brushing, it is important to brush at least twice a day and floss daily.
