Here is how you can change your diet up to help with tooth sensitivity.
Eat some Oxalate rich foods, this includes bananas and spinach. Oxalic acid can help plug up dentinal tubules which is where the tooth sensitivity starts.
The fuzzy, grainy feeling you feel around your teeth after eating a banana is just that. (For those who are more prone to kidney stone formation, eat fewer oxalate rich foods)
Ask your dentist about tooth sensitivity (shocking teeth)! So we had a patient walk into our clinic today with complaints of tooth sensitivity.
On intraoral examination, we saw he had several areas of tooth wear lesions like cervical abrasion and enamel erosion present.

10 main Problems of the Teeth. 😁
5. Tooth Sensitivity - Major factors that lead to tooth sensitivity are gum recession and loss of cementum, and loss of enamel. When the enamel is worn down, or the gum line is recessed, exposing the dentin, tooth sensitivity can occur. The dentin contains tubules that run from the center of the tooth, which contains the nerves of the tooth.☝️ #Teeth#ToothSensitivity#Dentistry#Dentalinfo#IMCrak#IMCuae#IMCHealthcare
Clarity Dental Fun Fact of the week…
Did you know a major cause of sensitivity is root exposure?
Some may think that as we get older, we have more root exposure. However, root exposure depends on how well we have maintained our gums throughout our lives.
If you are concerned about this condition or are suffering from sensitivity, make an appointment today by calling us on 5441 4441.
👨🏻🏫 Tooth Abrasion
Abrasion is a form of tooth surface loss by a habit such as toothbrushing with a hard brush and coarse toothpaste.
The gingiva recede, the enamel (outer layer of the tooth) loss, and the exposure of the dentin (inner layer of the tooth) means the tooth may become sensitive to hot and cold stimulation.
The tooth may need a restoration, and learn more about the proper brushing technique directly from your personal dentist.
So I've been trying this horrible tasting drink in the morning for 5 days as of today. Today is day 2 without coffee #whot 🤤 but my teeth are super sensitive today 🤔😷 any #acv users who combat this side effect? I can say I have as much energy as if I've had 2 cups of ☕☕ #applecidervinegar#toothsensitivity
WHY A TOOTHACHE HURTS SO MUCH
A painful tooth is literally in your head. That fact offers you little opportunity to find a comfortable position for to neutralize the waves of discomfort, as opposed to a painfully sprained foot, for example, which you can elevate and use ice packs to get some sort of reprieve. Additionally, your teeth have an abundance of neural connections to the pain centers in the brain. This seems to amplify the noxious “distress signals.”
The face and head, including your teeth, are richly served by the nervous system and make for an exquisitely sensitive and responsive anatomic region. This is one of the “benefits” of being at the top of the evolutionary ladder.
For all that makes your teeth especially sensitive to painful stimuli, they are also much like any other part of the body; namely, they can experience transient discomfort that can dissipate almost as quickly as it arises. Aches and pains are a part of an active lifestyle (at least for those of us over 40!) so why should teeth be any different? I’m sure you are familiar with the sudden wince when biting into something unexpectedly hard, or the piercing jolt when chewing ice cold fruit or taking too big a mouthful of ice cream.
But equally familiar is the agony of a stubbed toe. In most cases, no real damage is done, but the painful sensation is no less real. A stubbed toe need not be broken to hurt and similarly, a traumatized tooth that encountered a foreign object during the chewing cycle need not be cracked (as in broken or split) for you to experience pain.
With all of that said, your teeth are unique “organs.” Within the body of each tooth lies the dental pulp, commonly thought of as the nerve of the tooth. In actuality, the dental pulp is more complex than that. It contains specialized cells that form tooth structure, blood vessels that nourish the tooth, connective tissue, and nerve fibers. Unlike other parts of the body, the delicate blood supply to the dental pulp is limited by a tiny opening in the tip of the root and the rigid walls of the tooth itself.
