Sensitivity of the teethFull Cosmetic Treatment by Perfect Smile is characterised by a sudden feeling of pain when eating or drinking a hot or cold food product. Another symptom of the condition is a feeling of tenderness while brushing the teeth.

Having sensitive teeth can be a very unpleasant experience, making it difficult or even impossible for people to enjoy some of their favourite foods and beverages.

In such cases, it is important to visit a dentist, who can examine the teeth and determine the cause of the problem.

Frequently, sensitivity is caused by dentin exposure due to enamel erosion. Since dentin is directly linked to nerves, a feeling of pain can occur. If this is the case, the condition can be treated with fluoride.

Other possible causes for teeth sensitivity can be dental cavities or dental root exposure. In this case, the problem can be solved by a tooth filling or by applying medication that can significantly relieve the condition.

How to Sooth Sensitive Teeth

  • Brush your teeth with a soft bristle brush that does not scratch the surface of the teeth.
  • Use special toothpaste and mouthwash that are designed for sensitive teeth.
  • Minimise the consumption of acidic or sweetened beverages
