Tooth sensitivity, also called severe dentin sensitivity,

Occurs when the sensitive part of the tooth called the dentin is caused by the loss of enamel or gingival resorption.

Tooth sensitivity is usually experienced as pain when eating and drinking hot, cold, sweet foods and even breathing cold air.

In dental allergies or specifically dentin allergies, we have a very clear and sharp pain that the patient can fully identify which tooth this pain is on. But in some other pains, the patient can not accurately identify the point of the toothache.

If your teeth are sensitive, some things like brushing, flossing and eating can cause temporary toothache and gnashing of teeth. Tooth sensitivity is usually the result of wear of the enamel or the identification of tooth roots. Of course, this discomfort sometimes has other causes such as tooth decay, cracking, lip filling or broken teeth, or recently filled teeth.

The reason for dental allergies, Although there are dozens of reasons for tooth sensitivity, the process of tooth sensitivity is essentially the same; “The inside of the tooth is in contact with the rough world outside.” Our teeth are mainly made of dentin, which in turn contains small tubules full of sensitive nerve endings.

Normally, enamel covers dentin tubules, and this layer protects the tooth from external damage. But if the enamel wears or rots or cracks and the protective part of the delicate part inside the tooth is destroyed, the tooth becomes sensitive. If we look more specifically at the issue of tooth sensitivity, We have to explain the accepted theory called hydrodynamic theory.

The theory of hydrodynamics argues that the constant flow of fluid inside the dentinal tubules is the main cause of tooth extraction. This liquid contracts at low temperature and expands at high temperature, Extreme sourness or sweetness drains the liquid and the air dries it.

Changes in fluid flow activate mechanical receptors in the tubular nerves. In other words, the standard amount of fluid changes and as a result pain occurs.

The fact is that our teeth are extremely sensitive to almost anything, Brushing less, brushing heavily, sour or sweet acidic foods, dirty teeth, Recently scaling or whitening of teeth, gnashing of teeth, hard chocolate and…

All and sundry cause tooth sensitivity, which is why it is so important to maintain good oral hygiene.

The simplest, fastest, cheapest and most painless treatment for dental allergies is the same advice that has been passed down for centuries; prevention is better than cure. The most common causes of tooth sensitivity are described below:

Teeth whitening

Sensitization of teeth, especially smaller teeth such as maxillary and mandibular incisors, is not a concern for several hours after teeth whitening.

Dental sensitivity after bleaching is due to the fact that peroxide (whitening agent) reaches the nerves of the brain (pulp) of the tooth. This is a normal complication and will go away after a few days.

Gingival analysis

Unfortunately, gingival resorption is one of the natural consequences of aging. As the gums age, they decay and the dentin that protected the gums appears.

There are different types of gum disease, but the side effects are the same.

Severe and inappropriate brushing. If you use a hard toothbrush and brush your teeth violently,

You should know that you are doing the worst injustice to your teeth and you should wait for the sensitivity of your teeth by removing the enamel. Brush your teeth properly with a suitable toothbrush. If your teeth still grind after following these tips, See a dentist.
