What is Tooth Sensitivity?
Sensitivity is the short, sharp pain experienced when
eating or drinking something cold, hot, sweet, sour or
spicy. This is because of exposed dentine – the inner
core of the tooth surrounding the nerve. This can lead
to other problems if not treated.
What Causes Sensitive Teeth?
Dentinal hypersensitivity, or tooth sensitivity, is a
common dental problem. It’s a condition that can develop
over time, as a result of common problems such as receding
gums and enamel wear. Most sufferers are between 20 and 50
years old. Tooth sensitivity can start to happen when the
softer, inner part of the tooth called ‘dentine’ becomes
exposed. Dentine lies under the enamel and the gums.
Thousands of microscopic channels run through the dentine
towards the centre of the tooth. Once the dentine is exposed,
external triggers (such as a cold drink) can stimulate the
nerves inside the tooth, resulting in the characteristic
short, sharp sensation of tooth sensitivity.
Sensodyne, is specially formulated to relieve
tooth sensitivity. 8 out of 10 dentists
recommend Sensodyne for sensitive teeth.
