If there are times you refuse a cold or hot drink all because they may hurt your teeth, you might be having a sensitive teeth and you need to act fast.

Sometimes other things can cause your teeth to hurt too, like sweet and sour foods or even cold air.

To be able to treat these tooth problems, it is important to know what might be behind them. Once you’ve nailed down the cause, you can find a solution.

Washing away of your Tooth Enamel

Tooth Enamel is that hard and protective layer that helps your teeth deal with everything you put them through. When it is gone, your tooth is now exposed and leads to tooth pain.

Now how do you know what items or activities causes the enamel to wash away?

- Brushing your teeth too hard: do you brush your teeth like you are at war with them? You might be damaging your enamel. Side-to-side brushing right at the gum line can make your enamel go away faster. You should use a soft-bristled brush and work at a 45-degree angle to your gum to keep enamel clean and strong.

- Consuming acidic foods and drinks

Soda(coke, Fanta etc), sticky candy, high-sugar carbs all of these treats attack enamel. Instead, feed on fiber-rich fruits and vegetables such as; Cheese, Milk, Plain yogurt etc.

These will moisten your mouth and help fight acid and bacteria that can eat away at your teeth. Saliva is one way your mouth deals with them.

You can also drink green or black tea or chew sugarless gum. If you do eat something acidic, don’t rush to brush. Wait an hour or so to strengthen before you scrub.

- bleaching your teeth

It's not news that people use some form mouth bleach to whiten their teeth. However this quest for shiny white teeths may cause you pain. Thankfully, sensitivity from bleaching is usually temporary.


Apart from your tooth enamel washing away, there are other natural and manmade factors that may cause tooth sensitivity such as listed below;

- Naturally shrinking gums

If you’re over 40, it could be that your gums are showing signs of wear and tear by pulling away from your teeth and uncovering your tooth roots. Those roots don’t have enamel to protect them, so they’re much more sensitive than the rest of your tooth.

- Gum disease

Plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth can make your gums pull back. Sometimes, disease can set in. It can destroy the bony support of your tooth. Don’t smoke. It can lead to gum disease.

- A cracked tooth or filling

When you break a tooth, the crack can go all the way down to your root. You’ll notice pain when your tooth is cold.


Treatment

Once you’ve identify the problem, there are a list of things your dentist can use to help ease your pain, including:

- Toothpaste for sensitive teeth

- Fluoride gel

- Fillings that cover exposed roots

- Sealants

- Desensitizing pastes (not used with a toothbrush)

If your case is serious, your dentist might suggest a tooth removal.

In conclusion, it is also important not to shy away from dental care because of tooth pain. Ignoring your teeth can make things worse. Brush and floss twice a day to help keep your smile bright and pain-free. And see your dentist for a checkup twice a year.
