Surprising causes of sudden tooth sensitivity

Surprising causes of sudden tooth sensitivity

Do you ever feel a sudden, sharp sensation in your teeth when you are drinking something cold, hot or eating something sweet or sour? If so, then you are suffering from teeth sensitivity and according to a study, 1 out of 3 people suffer from teeth sensitivity in Bangladesh. It is important to remember that sensitivity can worsen over time if not treated properly. Possible solutions include using a specialized desensitizing toothpaste. However, consulting your dentist to find the cause and create a treatment plan to address sensitive teeth is essential.

A number of factors can cause tooth sensitivity. Here’s how to figure out the source of sudden discomfort.

To find the cause of tooth sensitivity, a dentist will likely do an oral exam and ask for details about when the patient feel these flashes of pain. Key culprits to be aware of include:

Diet - Eating acidic or hard foods can harm teeth. Juices, citrus fruits, and sports drinks can contribute to tooth sensitivity.

Harsh brushing - Any abrasive technique can increase tooth sensitivity. Habits like, using a hard-bristled toothbrush and brushing teeth aggressively can contribute to tooth sensitivity.

Tooth decay - Even a small cavity can eat away enough tooth enamel to expose dentin and cause sensitivity. In this case, a filling or a crown might help.

Issues affecting your gums - Toothbrush abrasion, pocket reduction surgery, prep work for a crown, excessive flossing, and gum disease can all lead to gum-related tooth sensitivity. Gums also recede with age, which can further increase sensitivity.

Recent dental work – People may experience temporary sensitivity after having a dental procedure. This should improve within four weeks but they should let dentist know if it persists.

Pregnancy - Pregnancy doesn’t directly cause tooth sensitivity, but its hormonal changes can affect your gums, which might lead to some discomfort or pain.

Accidental Trauma: Due to minor injuries in any type of accidents, enamel may crack down and leads to sensitivity.

Tooth whitening - Sensitivity can be a temporary side effect of a whitening treatment, but it can also result from using overly harsh whitening products or whitening teeth too frequently. One can help reduce risk for tooth sensitivity by working with a dentist and following the manufacturer’s instructions on any whitening product.

Split tooth - If someone experience sensitivity when bite down, it may indicate a split tooth. This requires immediate attention.

Eating or digestive disorders - The frequent vomiting associated with bulimia leads to stomach acids wearing away at the surface of the teeth. Acid reflux can have the same effect.

Cold weather - Cold air flowing over teeth can trigger a sensitive twinge. On that case, Dentist might test sensitivity by blowing air on patient’s teeth.

Stress - Stress can lead to tooth damage if it causes to grind teeth, which in turn can cause tooth sensitivity. Because this grinding, called bruxism, often occurs when someone asleep and might not realize he/she is doing it. Teeth grinding can cause many problems, from tooth damage to headaches and hearing disorders.
