Get Rid of the Pain: How to Ease Sensitive Teeth

By Joey & Luke

Anyone can experience tooth sensitivity, and there are no telltale signs when it’s coming. However, it’s most prevalent among those aged 20 to 40. The condition occurs when the tooth’s protective layer, the enamel, wears away. This exposes the dentin beneath the enamel, leading to sensitivity when eating or drinking things that are hot, cold, sweet, or acidic.

What Causes Enamel to Wear Away

With heightened sensitivity, you may experience sharp bursts of pain in your teeth. This can cause mild to severe discomfort that can last for hours. Thankfully, there are ways you can relieve sensitivity.

How to Reduce Tooth Sensitivity

Finally, always keep up with your dental visits. If you feel tooth sensitivity is getting worse, let your dentist know. He or she will be able to recommend treatments for the sensitivity, such as fluoride gels or varnishes.
