Anyone can experience tooth sensitivity, and there’s 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.
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.
Finally, always keep up with your dental visits. If you feel tooth sensitivity is getting worse, let your dentist know. Those in Raleigh may want to see about getting themselves an appointment with a family dentist like Thomas E. Cooke. He or she will be able to recommend treatments for the sensitivity, such as fluoride gels or varnishes.
