Sensitive Teeth – Maroubra Dentist

What Is Tooth Sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity is very common. It’s estimated that one in three adults suffer pain due to sensitive teeth forcing them to avoid consuming cold foods and hot drinks.

Sensitive teeth (Dentin Hypersensitivity) are usually caused by the erosion of enamel (the hard outer layer of the tooth), which leaves the dentin less protected. The dentin contains tiny nerve endings that run down into the tooth root. Also, receding gums can leave the dentin and tooth root exposed.

What Causes Sensitive Teeth?

  • Hot or cold foods and drinks.
  • Grinding teeth and clenching.
  • Aggressive brushing, too much brushing.
  • Poor oral hygiene, allowing bacteria to destroy the enamel.
  • Brushing with abrasive toothpaste or teeth whitening paste.
  • Receding gums due to aging or improper brushing and oral care.
  • A chipped or damaged tooth, exposing the dentin and nerves.
