Common Causes of Sensitive Teeth

Woman with mouth painThe type of tooth sensitivity you have can mean different things. Some of the most common include

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum recession or periodontal disease
  • A cracked tooth
  • Dental abscess
  • Bruxism (grinding and clenching)
  • Whitening toothpaste or other products
  • Allergies and sinus infections

Treating Tooth Sensitivity

Depending on what’s contributing to your sensitive teeth, your treatment may be as simple as a fluoride application and change in your toothpaste to gum therapy or a root canal.

Healthy teeth that tend to be sensitive often respond well to desensitising treatments and fluoride varnish, with symptoms improving for up to three months after each application. You can request one during your routine check and clean or make a quick follow-up visit between your six-month checkups.

At Home Options

If you use a whitening toothpaste, put it aside for a few weeks. Instead, using a toothpaste formulated for sensitivity can help to provide some relief within a week or two. Patients with at-home whitening systems can consider using them less frequently and combined with desensitising products, but chronic symptoms should be addressed by our dentists.

Listen to Your Body

Sensitivity on a specific tooth or pain that comes and goes is your body’s way of trying to tell you that there’s something wrong. Sensitive teeth are often the first sign of tooth decay or gum disease, especially if you haven’t seen a dentist recently.
