Why is teeth sensitivity such a pain and what can you do to treat those twinges? There are many different reasons and remedies for this common condition. Discover all of your treatment options to take the ache away.

4 Sources of Teeth Sensitivity

Teeth sensitivity is due to a substance called dentin, which is the layer beneath your tooth enamel and gums. This layer becomes more and more exposed as your enamel and gums wear away. The dentin is connected to the nerves of your tooth, so when it comes into contact with extremes in temperature or touch, it produces pangs of pain. The only way to find out the cause of your teeth sensitivity is to get an examination from an expert in family dentistry. The majority of cases are caused by these factors:

  1. Cavities and tooth decay
  2. Various stages of gum disease
  3. Exposed teeth roots caused by receded gums
  4. Erosion of tooth enamel erosion due to abrasive substances

Ways to Manage the Pain

The problem has become so prevalent that many treatments have been developed. These remedies range from at-home practices to enhance your oral hygiene routine to in-office procedures performed by an affordable dentist. Depending on your level of personal of teeth sensitivity, family dentistry expert can recommend the treatment that’s best for you. The majority of teeth sensitivity cases can be treated as follows:

  • Brush with a gentle touch
