Sensitive Teeth

The cause of tooth sensitivity:

  1. Dentine, the layer of the tooth beneath the enamel, becomes exposed
  2. Bacteria enter the pulp, the live part of the tooth
  3. The puple becomes inflamed

Treatment

We seal the sensitive dentine with either:

  • Filling
  • Dentine sealant
  • Concentrated fluoride varnish

Prevention

To prevent sensitive teeth there are several things you can do on a daily basis to help:

  • Effective cleaning to remove acidic plaque
  • Gentle use of a soft toothbrush to prevent wear
  • Using a toothpaste containing fluoride as directed by manufacturer
  • Reduction of acid in the diet e.g. fizzy drinks, citrus fruits and wine
