Tooth sensitivity....is a sharp shooting and sudden pain..we feel while eating something cold,hot or kind of sweets...once it starts lasts long..very difficult to cover..can disturbs your routine life..

Why it happens so sudden..??? There are many factors or reasons that are responsible, like tooth decay,worn enamel layer(a white,hardest layer of tooth),cracked tooth,or gums diseases due to which dentine get expose and further causing decays and sensitivity.



Due to enamel loss dentinal layer gets exposed which is a very sensitive layer of a tooh. We cant recover this enamel loss and exposed dentinal tubes.But we can block these opened channels by using some medications.

WHAT TO DO...??

Friends...we are blessed with 32 beautiful pearls..yeahh our TEETH.



A tooth... is a living thing made up of 3 important layers..i.e ENAMEL..DENTINE and PULP as shown below, surrounded by soft tissues..gums and bone around.

PULP is very sensitive n vital part of our tooth, its the first to b formed during tooth development, then DENTIN and ENAMEL layer.Pulp contains blood vessels and nerves which r responsible for vitality of tooh,it nourishes a tooth. In childrens pulp is very large in size but as it grows...it becomes smaller..as dentine and enamel layers get deposited..

DENTINE is the second most layer of a tooh,very sensitive to hot and cold things if exposed by decay create a sharp shooting pain in tooth.Its very soft in nature,Yellowish in colour.

Sometimes we all get surprized to see our teeth turning yellow.Bt friends...it happens due to enamel layer loss...vry slowly. We cant rebuild this layer..our teeth becomes vry sensitive to hot.cold, and sweets..then we use sensitivity …
