Why Do Teeth Get Sensitive Over Time?Ageing might be one of the biggest enemies to the health of your teeth. Many adults have gone through the experience of having their teeth getting sensitive. This is natural, especially when it comes to ageing.

However, you are not doomed to suffer from sensitive teeth forever. Some treatments and tips exist to help you get around the situation.

When you have sensitive teeth, activities like eating or brushing can be quite problematic. Most times, you will find yourself passing on your favorite cold or hot foods or beverages. Nevertheless, sometimes cavities, gum diseases, worn out fillings and chipped teeth can cause sensitivity. If sensitive teeth are a bother to you, consider visiting us to rule out any underlying causes.

Age and Teeth

At any age, anyone has the capability of suffering from sensitive teeth. Research shows that this problem mostly affects people from the age of 20 to 50, developing more from 30 to 40. This is because adults are more likely to suffer from the recession of gums. Gum recession is a leading cause of tooth sensitivity.

In a normal setting, the tooth enamel wears off as time progresses. Even at a young age. Since time is a big contributor to the wear and tear that affects the enamel, the chances of adults having sensitive teeth increases significantly.

You do not have to be a victim of sensitive teeth if you are an adult. Fortunately, we have affordable options to prevent tooth sensitivity. One popular way that can save you the agony is by using a soft-bristled brush and good floss to brush your teeth and the prevention of gum and enamel erosion. The use of desensitizing toothpaste can also help you regain the natural sensitivity of your teeth.

Our dental facilities also provide affordable and professional treatment options for tooth sensitivity. Seeking our advice can ensure that your history of tooth sensitivity remains in your browser.
