Why Age is the Age-Old Cause of Sensitive Teeth

dca-blog-437-Sensitive-Teeth_1200x630

Many adults find that their teeth get sensitive over time. This is a natural result of aging, but you don’t need to suffer with sensitive teeth. Whether you’re struggling with tooth sensitivity or hoping to avoid it altogether, discover these treatments and tips to help you face this sensitive issue.

The Agitation of Tooth Sensitivity

You may have sensitive teeth if you feel a pang of pain or a tingling sensation from eating, drinking, brushing your teeth, or cold air. This sensation can last just a moment, but may become a more recurrent problem over time. A whopping 40 million adults suffer from such sensitivity on a regular basis. The surest route to soothing your sensitivity is to have an affordable dentist get to the root of the problem because tooth sensitivity can come from many causes, including:

  • Poor brushing or flossing habits
  • Overly vigorous tooth brushing
  • Eroded tooth enamel
  • Receding gums that expose the tooth’s layer of dentin or the root of the tooth
  • Frequently eating and drinking acidic foods
  • Tooth grinding
  • Acid reflux
  • Diabetes, which can lead to gum to disease
  • Smoking

Prime Time for Tooth Sensitivity and Pain

Anyone at any age can have sensitive teeth. But research shows that the problem mostly affects adults between ages 20 and 50, with most cases developing between the ages of 30 and 40. This is often attributed to the fact that adults are more likely to have gum recession, a leading cause of sensitive teeth. Since time results in more wear and tear on tooth enamel, the likelihood of tooth sensitivity increases among adults.

Treating Sensitive Teeth

You don’t have to suffer with sensitive teeth. Fortunately, the problem can be easily treated by an affordable dentist or prevented completely. To avoid the agony entirely, follow these recommendations:

  • Gently brush and floss to prevent the erosion of your tooth enamel and gums.
  • Use desensitizing toothpaste.
  • Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush.
