Understanding Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity, also known as dentin hypersensitivity, occurs when the protective layer of enamel on your teeth wears down, exposing the underlying dentin. Dentin contains tiny tubules that lead to the tooth's nerve center, and when exposed, it can lead to sensitivity.

Common Causes of Tooth Sensitivity

Several factors can contribute to tooth sensitivity, including:  

  • Tooth Wear: Enamel erosion from aggressive brushing or teeth grinding can lead to sensitivity.
  • Gum Recession: Receding gums can expose the tooth's roots, which are more sensitive to temperature changes and pressure.
  • Tooth Decay: Cavities and decay can result in sensitivity, especially if they reach the tooth's inner pulp.  

Restorative Dentistry Solutions  

Dentists offer various restorative dentistry solutions to address tooth sensitivity, including:  

  • Dental Bonding: A tooth-colored resin is applied to cover exposed dentin and reduce sensitivity.
  • Dental Crowns: Crowns can protect and strengthen a tooth with weakened enamel, reducing sensitivity.
  • Root Canal Therapy: A root canal can provide relief for severe cases of sensitivity caused by pulp inflammation or infection.
