When Should You be Worried About Sensitive Teeth?


Many of us suffer from sensitive teeth from time to time. However, this condition can also become a chronic issue. The main question therefore involves when it is prudent to speak with a dentist. Let us take a look at some professional advice.

There can be times when one or more teeth have suddenly become sensitive. This could signal an underlying issue such as worn-down enamel, a cavity or gum disease.

In either situation be sure to speak with an expert. In the event that the levels of sensitivity have changed (such as a tooth which has suddenly become much more sensitive than in the past). Be sure to consult with a specialist if common treatment options (such as desensitising toothpaste) are no longer providing results. Here are the main takeaway points:

  • Any change in sensitivity should be examined.
  • This could indicate an injury, a cavity or an issue with your gums.
  • Sensitive teeth should never be ignored.
  • “When tooth enamel is jeopardized, it can lead to oral health problems, which is why talking to your dentist about sensitive teeth is important.”
