What is teeth sensitivity? – Teeth Sensitivity Treatment Chandigarh


Our teeth are made of three layers: enamel, dentin, and pulp. Enamel is the outermost hard layer, dentin is the middle layer, and pulp is the innermost layer. The pulp contains the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth. When the second layer is exposed, it leads to tooth sensitivity.

There are various causes of dentin exposure, such as wearing off the enamel and root exposure due to gum recession. Enamel is absent on the roots, so root sensitivity is common in gums recession cases. Tooth sensitivity occurs mainly due to hot and cold food items. It may also occur due to sweet food items in some cases. 

In the information provided below, we will discuss the causes, symptoms, and treatment options available for teeth sensitivity- brought to you by Bristles Dental Studios.

Causes of teeth sensitivity – Teeth Sensitivity Treatment Chandigarh

Gum recession

The gums get pulled off, exposing the root surface, which leads to tooth sensitivity.

Enamel erosion

Enamel erosion can occur due to excessive intake of highly acidic foods and a medical condition called gastroesophageal reflux disorder. Knowing the exact cause of tooth sensitivity is essential to identifying the underlying medical conditions.

Wearing off the enamel

Wearing off the enamel is a natural aging process. As the enamel wears off, it leads to the exposure of underlying dentin. Another major cause of enamel wear is teeth grinding or bruxism.

Excessive teeth whitening

Using at-home whitening products that are easily available on the market is not as safe as professional teeth whitening products. There is a higher chance of teeth sensitivity with at-home kits due to damage to enamel.

Got Invisible Aligners at Bristles

Been using clear aligners recommended by Dr. Kanish for sometime now. They’re really comfortable and nobody actually notices them unless you mention. Fantastic solution to teeth alignment without the use of metal braces! I’d definitely recommend at least a consultation with the Bristles Dental Studios’ team if you’re bothered by the current alignment of your teeth..

Thank you so so so much. Kindest regards Renu and Hardevinder Mann.

Got regular dental check up and esthetic fillings done are Bristles Dental Studios

Since childhood dentists have always scared me. However, this perception changed when I visited Bristles. Dr. Palak is the sweetest dentist I’ve come across. She makes the patient feel comfortable, undertakes the process slowly and smoothly by constantly informing the patient about the procedures. What to expect at Bristles:- 1. Amazing hygiene. 2. Competent staff. 3. Smooth procedures. 4. Genuine prices. 5. Lots of treatment options. What NOT to expect at Bristles:- 1. Overpriced services. 2. Misguidance 3. Rushed treatment. This place is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Visited the clinic in pain for a Root canal treatment

I went with a deep broken tooth and I was recommended root canal by Dr. Palak at Bristles Dental Studio. I have seen a friend in the past cry in pain after root canal and which is why I was really afraid to get it done. Dr. Palak understood my fears and made sure I was comfortable during the root canal process by using her specialised pain prevention processes. I didn’t have to bear a lot of pain and my root canal was done smoothly. I’m happy with my experience here.

Treatment options available – Teeth Sensitivity Treatment Chandigarh

There are various treatment options for teeth sensitivity at Bristles Dental Studios.  

Dental bonding

Applying a tooth-colored resin material and bonding it to the exposed tooth surface using a special blue light is another effective measure to combat tooth sensitivity.

Fluoride varnish

Sealers and fluoride varnishes help seal the dentinal tubules that carry the stimulus of sensitivity. It is an effective method of managing teeth sensitivity.  

Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment, or RCT, removes the nerves and blood vessels of the concerned tooth to eliminate the pain or sensitivity to cold, sweet, and hot food objects. RCT is the last option for treating teeth sensitivity when other options have failed. 

Home remedies

  • Take a short break from teeth whitening products if you regularly use them.
  • Try using a desensitizing toothpaste with your finger by applying it evenly on all the teeth’ surfaces.
  • If teeth grinding is the cause of wearing the enamel, then it is suggested that nightguards be worn to prevent further damage.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid abrasion.
  • Avoid highly acidic and sour food items to eliminate the risk of enamel erosion.
  • Use fluoridated toothpaste.
