Dealing with Tooth Sensitivity - Part 2
By Roger B. Parkes, DMD on June 08, 2016
1. Dental Trauma-- A tooth can become receptive to even a small force when it has been hurt in any way, "wounded" and even fractured (by biting downward on something). Sometimes even having your teeth cleaned or a filling done are causes of tenderness. Tenderness to injury can take weeks or even months in order to fully resolve.
2. Uneven Bite-- When a tooth or teeth are hitting too soon or too hard because the teeth have moved, meaning that your bite has shifted, it can bring about sensitivity. These transformations can possibly come from a multitude of factors like thumb sucking, or reduction of bone structure, a tooth being removed and the some other teeth moving into the empty space etc. Once again a bite adjustment typically corrects the trouble.
3. Dental Decay-- The tooth typically ends up being hypersensitive to hot or cold, desserts, as well as acidic food when a tooth is worn away considering that bacteria have the ability to enter into the nerve of the tooth. Extraction of the decay and a dental filling is involved to solve this matter.
4. Dental Infection - The receptiveness can possibly be severe in the case that there is an infection within the tooth. Treatment is normally demanded to heal the infection or it may not only simply cause extreme soreness, but also considerable health and wellness concerns.
5. Dentinal Sensitivity-- Exposed dentin is easily the most frequent reason for tooth sensitivity. This develops when the dentin (the internal layer of a tooth) is subjected. Those who have a healthy, strong layer of enamel on their teeth tend not to generally experience tooth sensitivity. The enamel may be eroded by numerous matters, considering that the density of enamel differs from one person to another. Dentin is a sponge-like material including small tubes that hook up the root canal space pulp to the outside of the dentin. If the enamel on the tooth is endangered the dentin might be made vulnerable, creating tenderness
Teeth can become sensitive for various factors ranging from damage to dental disease. The first step in treating sensitive teeth is to identify the trigger. Contact our team at the Periodontal Associates of Jackson in Jackson, MS for a consultation.
