Hypersensitivity of teeth
When you drink a cold drink of ice in the heat, or a hot, aromatic coffee in the morning you do not feel refreshed or palatable, but you struggle with penetrating pain, which usually takes a few seconds, but can effectively discourage cold and warm food. Such symptoms are appropriate for dental hypersensitivity. Why?
What is hypersensitivity to the tooth?
Sensitive teeth can effectively distract us from life and take away all the joy of eating and drinking. The symptom of hypersensitivity is acute but usually temporary pain when consuming not only warm and cold foods but also sour or sweet. You can feel the sensitivity of your teeth during their standard daily washing, rinsing and stripping.
The most often hypersensitive teeth are canines, premolars, incisors and molars – more often to the left than to the right of the jaw and jaw.
Causes of dental hypersensitivity
Specialists point out that the increased sensitivity of the teeth is mainly due to poor diet and poor oral hygiene. Perhaps the patient is too short and neat to clean his teeth, which aggravates their condition.
However, this does not exhaust all the causes of hypersensitivity within the teeth. Pain in contact with cold, warm, sour or sweet foods and drinks can occur as a result of coexisting malocclusions, periodontitis or caries.
Many factors contribute to the formation of dental hypersensitivity, including:
• bruxism – gnashing of teeth,
• Excessive or insufficient oral hygiene,
• teeth whitening,
• Use for brushing with a hard bristle brush,
• Too tight to brush the tooth surface,
• using abrasive toothpastes,
• consuming excessive amounts of acidic products,
• frequent vomiting – eg in the course of bulimia,
• frequent drinking of carbonated beverages,
• micro-injury to teeth,
• biting nails, for example.
