Description

If you have ever undergone teeth whitening treatment wither at home or at your dentist’s office, your teeth have probably experienced either a slight tingle or an acute hypersensitivity.

As much as teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can greatly improve your appearance, one it’s key pitfalls is teeth sensitivity. Statistics show that about 45 million Americans or 1 in 5 adults suffer from teeth sensitivity. Teeth sensitivity is caused when the hard enamel that covers the inner porous layer called the dentin is stripped away. The dentin layer is where the nerve endings are present, so when the enamel is eroded, your nerves are exposed to the elements and this painful exposure is what is known as teeth sensitivity.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Teeth sensitivity is caused when the hard enamel that covers the inner porous layer called the dentin is stripped away.

http://www.DrMohanty.com The dentin layer is where the nerve endings are present, so when the enamel is eroded, your nerves are exposed to the elements and this painful exposure is what is known as teeth sensitivity.

http://www.DrMohanty.com There are a number of reasons why the tooth enamel gets eroded leading to sensitivity:

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Tooth decay

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Chipped, Broken or cracked teeth

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Broken, splintered or worn out dental fillings

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Using too much force when brushing your teeth

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Using a very hard toothbrush everyday

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Grinding or clenching your teeth very often

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Overeating acidic foods like pickles

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Cracking hard candy in your mouth

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Teeth whitening

http://www.DrMohanty.com Teeth whitening leads to teeth sensitivity because the active ingredient which is hydrogen peroxide, bleaches the teeth and remove both surface and deeper level stains.

http://www.DrMohanty.com How to deal with teeth whitening sensitivity

http://www.DrMohanty.com * To decrease the chances of getting sensitivity, use whitening products that have lower levels of hydrogen peroxide

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Apply teeth whitening treatments for a shorter time

http://www.DrMohanty.com * Although mild sensitivity for a few days during whitening treatments is common, if it should persist for longer than a week and is very painful, then stop using the whitening treatment product at once.

http://www.DrMohanty.com It is wise to then consult your dentist as he can recommend the best way forward.

http://www.DrMohanty.com * After a whitening treatment session, avoid eating or drinking very cold or very hot foods and drinks.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Exposing your whitened teeth to these extreme temperatures triggers painful sensitivity.

http://www.DrMohanty.com Make sure your foods and drinks are at room temperature.

http://www.DrMohanty.com You should also avoid acidic foods for a few days after whitening your teeth.
