Tooth sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity is a nuisance that develops over time due to the following factors:

  • Gum recession (by aggressive brushing, periodontal disease or malocclusions)
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)

Both cases originate dental exposure in the layer called dentin, when having a meal or cold, hot or sugary drinks will cause the patient to have a brief but sharp pang at which it is commonly known as tooth sensitivity.

Tooth sensitivity can be treated with the following steps:

  • Conducting a good dental hygiene, always including flossing.
  • Using toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
  • Using a soft bristle toothbrush.
  • Brushing teeth frequently but gently pressing when brushing.
  • Use a mouth guard to prevent teeth grinding.
  • Visiting the dentist regularly for professional cleanings, preventing gingivitis and receiving information about dental care.
  • In case of severe problem of occlusion, it can be woked through orthodontic or complete Oral Rehabilitation.
