Kindly go to a dentist for a Consult as tooth sensitivity can be due to
2. Gum recession
3. Periodontal diseases
4. Cracked tooth
5. Problems in bite.
Go for the finding of the cause to solve your sensitivity. I will give an example, if u have cavity( caries) in your teeth and you are using toothpastes which can cure tooth sensitivity, then you are going wrong as the treating your cavity will directly solve your problem.
hello Practo user,tooth sensitivity may be of different factors like enamel wear,dental cavity,or due to the gingival recession.start using desensitizers which relieves some pain but they are only for temporary relief. visit dentist for permanent solution.Regards
Sensitivity is mostly caused by damage to the tooth structure, either due to wrong brushing technique or use of hard bristle brushes. Get to know the extent of damage on visiting a dentist and treatment options available. Sensitivity could also be due to erosion of the enamel, due to acidity in the oral environment..
Sensitivity is also sometimes associated with tooth decay.
Elicit the cause of sensitivity in your mouth through consult with Dentist
Sensitivity might arise due to a crack in the tooth, dental cavity, enamel wear or due to gum recession. Permanent solution will require a clinical Checkup for underlying cause. Meanwhile start using "RA-Thermoseal toothpaste" or "Vantej toothpaste", whichever is available in your city. Apply the paste on affected area and leave it for half an hour, then rinse- do this twice or thrice daily. But do get a Checkup done! Take care!
Sensitivity of teeth can occur due to varied reasons , the most common being a existing dental cavity or enamel wear. You need to visit the nearest dental centre and check for the underlying cause .In the mean time you can use any sensitive tooth pastes available in the market which might give you little relief.
Cure of sensitivity depends upon the causative factors behind its, and it must be evaluated by your dentist first, so get your dental checkup done asap, meanwhile you can read my article on dental hypersensitivity on my practo profile to understand the mystery and treatment of sensitive teeth.
