What causes tooth sensitivity? Explained by Dr. Sam Gupta

What causes tooth sensitivity? Explained by Dr. Sam Gupta
Are your teeth sensitive to cold or hot food? Is one side of your face always in pain due to teeth sensitivity? Watch this video to learn more about tooth sensitivity and what causes it as Dr. Sam Gupta explains it all.

What can cause severe tooth sensitivity?

Most patients come in and claim that they have sensitivity on one side of their face and all the teeth are sensitive on that side. We think there might be a cavity or an abscess. We take an x-ray and find that the patient hardly has deep fillings or even fillings.

After questioning them, we find that they grind/clench their teeth a lot, and they have a lot of stress in their lives, which leads to clenching teeth. They like chewing gum, which leads to clenching or grinding.

How to stop grinding teeth to avoid teeth sensitivity?

For general sensitivity, issues watch out for the acidic intake of your food. If you are having a lot of wine, pop, juices high in acidic food, try to reduce them. Even if you are having them, try to finish within 5 minutes and rinse your mouth to neutralize the acid.

Are you chewing a lot of gum? Gum chewing leads to faster wearing of your teeth, which leads to sensitivity, and it also can make you grind your teeth since you are used to that habit.

Stress in general. Some people tend to release their stress by clenching their teeth. If you catch yourself clenching your teeth when stressed, pay attention to something else, and stop.

How is painless dentistry possible?

Painless dentistry has come a long way because the drills and lasers now available to cut hard tissues are so accurate and vibration-free.

Patients comment about it every day that they did not feel any discomfort.
