How does sensitivity happen? Can tooth sensitivity be treated or avoided?

How does sensitivity happen?

There are several causes for sensitivity, since dentine can be exposed in a number of ways.

  • You may have a broken or cracked tooth, or you may have a hole as a result of tooth decay which now needs a filling.
  • Over-brushing your teeth (too hard or for too long) can wear down your tooth enamel.
  • Acidic food and drink can erode your enamel.
  • Receding gums can slowly expose the root of your tooth, which doesn’t have an enamel layer. This can occur naturally or through gum disease, including gingivitis.
  • Poor-quality cosmetic teeth whitening treatments can cause damage to your enamel.
  • If you grind your teeth, you can wear away your enamel or even the whole tooth.

Can tooth sensitivity be treated or avoided?

  • Make sure you have regular check-ups with your dentist and see your hygienist whenever you’re referred.
  • Follow your dentist’s or hygienist’s advice for looking after your teeth at home.
  • Visit your dentist as soon as you suspect you may have a problem such as a cavity, a cracked tooth or a change in your gums. Treatment can stop things getting worse.
  • Your dentist might recommend a fluoride gel, rinse or varnish. These can gradually build up the protective layer of your teeth.
  • Avoid sugary, fizzy and acidic foods and drinks.
  • Don’t brush your teeth from side to side – instead, use small, circular motions.
  • Switch to a softer toothbrush and replace it as soon as it shows signs of wear.
  • Use a desensitising toothpaste, ideally one with fluoride in (but take your dentist’s advice, because too much fluoride can be bad for you).

With This Week Promising To Be A ‘Scorcher’, Our Neem Dentists, Harrow/Wembley Offer Some Timely Advice.

If the weather reports are anywhere near accurate, this week we are likely to see temperatures reaching 30 degrees and possibly beyond. These temperatures are more typical of places like Rome and Athens than Harrow / Wembley!

We shouldn’t complain though given the unreliability of the British weather, but these temperatures don’t come without risks and we need to protect our teeth and gums when the weather gets hot.

Below, we offer our patients some basic but useful tips.

1 – Don’t use the weather to skip your dental appointment. If you have an appointment made for a check-up at Neem Dental Clinic, Harrow, please keep it. Postponing it until it cools down may result in a longer delay than you intend. We will do our best to see you as soon as we can when you come, so that you can get back out in the sun.

2 – Stay well hydrated. It is easy to become dehydrated in the hot weather and this is bad for our general health but also for our gums. Gum disease is more likely to be present in people with a dry mouth so try to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

3 – Curb those World Cup celebrations – beer is OK in moderation, but a combination of hot weather and a Euro Cup means that some people will drink a lot more than usual. The risks of accidents rise when this happens, and, as we know, alcohol also causes a dry mouth (see above).

4 – Remember to brush – The heat can be draining, especially if it is also humid. Tiredness can then easily cause us to skip brushing our teeth at night before we go to bed because we are ‘too tired’. You should never be too tired to brush your teeth; it only takes a few minutes and is the most essential thing you can do to avoid tooth decay.

5 – Restrict your ice creams – As well as beer, the sale of ice creams and soft drinks tend to rise during the hotter weather. We all know that these are high in sugar and will damage our teeth if eaten and drunk in excess. Try to replace soft drinks with water as much as you can and keep the number of ice creams down to a sensible level. If you notice, whilst eating ice cream or drinking anything really cold, that your teeth feel really sensitive, you could have damaged your teeth; so please make an appointment at our Neem dental clinic if you notice this.

By all means, do enjoy this rare heatwave and have a good time, but don’t forget that your teeth could suffer if you don’t take sufficient care.

Following the above guidelines is a good start, along with common sense of course. If you have any problems with your teeth during the hot weather, or at any time, please call the Neem Dental Clinic, Harrow for an appointment on 020 8423 2523.

Oral Hygiene – Harrow – Neem Dental Clinic

Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth clean, and is considered to be the best means of prevention of cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, periodontitis, and other dental disorders. It also helps to prevent bad breath (halitosis).

Oral hygiene is necessary for all persons to maintain the health of their teeth and mouth. Healthy teeth have fewer cavities. They are clean and have minimal or no plaque deposits. Healthy gums are pink and firm.

Oral hygiene consists of both personal and professional care. Dental X-rays (radiographs) are often performed as part of routine professional examinations.

Why do I need to see a Hygienist?

Regular tooth cleaning by the dentist or dental hygienist is important to remove plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for a patient to reach on his own at home. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth. Most dentists recommend having the teeth professionally cleaned every six months.

Even if you do a great job of cleaning your teeth yourself and are religious about using dental floss, you still need professional cleanings. Dental hygienists use special techniques, instruments, and their professional training to complete oral hygiene that is impossible to do yourself. In addition, these professionals will examine your mouth as well as your teeth.

Composite Bonding Dental Health Monday to Friday Oral Saturday Appointment Teeth

Dental Composite Bonding (Cosmetic) | Neem Dental Clinic | Harrow

Bonding is usually used for filling chips, fractures or gaps between teeth, or for fixing discolouration. A composite resin is attached to a tooth and shaped to restore its original appearance. The colour of the resin is matched to your teeth, so it will appear as though it is a natural part of the tooth.

Composite bonding can help you achieve a smile you’re happier with. Composite bonding can be a cheaper alternative to crowns or veneers. It’s also a less invasive process and can be completed in just one appointment. And with regular brushing and good oral hygiene, your composite bonds should last for years.
