Signs that Sensitive Teeth Might Mean More

Posted .

Are you in the 20 percent or more of Americans suffering daily from tooth sensitivity? There are a couple things you can look at to find out; if you are suspicious that your chompers are sensitive, please contact us as soon as possible.

You can detect whether you are suffering from tooth sensitivity by monitoring its major symptoms. If you drink a hot or cold drink and sense only a tiny bit of sensitivity, you probably just need to brush your chompers a bit more often; when you notice short, intense stimulations, you likely have tooth sensitivity problems. Other signs include discomfort when brushing or touching the chompers, pain from sugar and pain from air blowing on your pearly whites.

Left untreated, dentin hypersensitivity can greatly impact a patient’s life. As tooth sensitivity is often a signal of tooth erosion, untreated pearly whites could fall out and cause difficulty eating and speaking for the patient. In some cases, new dentin layers can develop to shield the pulp and roots of the chompers, but if this doesn’t happen in time, the complications of tooth sensitivity could be catastrophic. We recommend seeking help for dentin hypersensitivity right away.
