Say goodbye to tooth sensitivity


At Maeoris Dental, we understand the impact that tooth sensitivity can have on your daily life. That sudden jolt of discomfort while enjoying your favourite foods or drinks can be frustrating. In this blog, we aim to shed light on tooth sensitivity, exploring its causes and offering effective solutions tailored to restore your comfort and confidence in your smile. 

What is tooth sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity, often described as a fleeting pain or discomfort when exposed to certain stimuli, such as hot or cold temperatures. 

It may present as either a transient or persistent condition, affecting one, several, or all teeth within an individual. While often manageable with diligent attention to daily dental care routines, prolonged or severe sensitivity warrants professional evaluation and advice from a dentist.

Identifying triggers for tooth sensitivity

As previously mentioned, experiencing discomfort is a common symptom associated with tooth sensitivity. Triggers for this discomfort include hot, cold, sweet, and acidic foods and beverages. Recognising these triggers and being mindful of which foods or beverages cause discomfort can greatly aid in effectively managing tooth sensitivity.

What causes tooth sensitivity? 

While some individuals may inherently possess thinner enamel, leading to tooth sensitivity, others experience enamel erosion due to various factors such as aggressive brushing, teeth grinding, and the consumption of acidic foods and beverages.

Moreover, more severe conditions like gum recession, tooth fractures, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), where stomach acid can corrode enamel over time, can exacerbate tooth sensitivity. These issues not only compromise dental health but also contribute to discomfort and pain, underscoring the importance of preventive measures and regular dental care.

Relief for tooth sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity can disrupt daily life. Fortunately, there are effective treatments available to alleviate this discomfort and restore dental health. Here are three common options:

  1. Desensitising toothpaste: Specially designed toothpaste can block nerve signals from tooth surfaces to reduce sensitivity.
  2. Fluoride treatment: Professional fluoride application by a dentist can strengthen enamel and reduce sensitivity.
  3. Dental procedures: Procedures like dental bonding, sealants, or root canal therapy may be recommended to address underlying issues. 

At Maeoris Dental, your comfort and oral health are our top priorities. Recognising how tooth sensitivity affects your daily life, we’re dedicated to delivering customised solutions that renew your confidence in your smile. Through targeted treatment that tackles the underlying causes of sensitivity and offers thorough care, we aim to bring back your comfort and assurance in your smile.
