Teeth Paining While Drinking Water

If you suddenly experience tingling in your teeth while drinking cold water or tea, you may have tooth sensitivity. Let’s take a look at what you need to know about tooth sensitivity;

Tooth sensitivity is a condition in which teeth react to hot, cold, sweet or sour foods and drinks. This may occur due to reasons such as erosion of tooth enamel or receding gums. The main cause of tooth sensitivity is thinning or damage to tooth enamel. When the outer layer of tooth enamel wears away, the dentin layer underneath the tooth is exposed, which can cause sensitivity. Additionally, receding gums can also lead to tooth sensitivity because the root of the tooth is exposed and this area also becomes sensitive.

Tooth sensitivity can negatively affect daily life. You may feel pain and discomfort, especially when consuming hot or cold foods and drinks. This may cause you to change your eating or drinking habits, which can negatively affect your eating habits.

Tooth sensitivity is generally a treatable condition. Treatment options include toothpastes containing fluoride, special toothpastes recommended by the dentist, fluoride applications, dental protective coatings and gum grafts. Additionally, your dentist may apply bonding or varnish, a thin layer that covers your teeth, to relieve tooth sensitivity.

How to Treat Tooth Sensitivity

  • Using the correct brushing technique: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush your teeth and avoid using too much pressure. Applying excessive force can damage tooth enamel.
  • Using toothpastes containing fluoride: Fluoride can help reduce tooth sensitivity by strengthening tooth enamel.
  • Avoiding acidic foods and drinks: Acidic foods can erode tooth enamel and increase tooth sensitivity. Therefore, it may be beneficial to limit acidic drinks and foods or use a straw when consuming them.
  • Having regular check-ups with your dentist: By checking your teeth regularly, your dentist can detect potential problems early and take treatment measures.
  • Taking care of your oral health: Gum disease can lead to tooth sensitivity, so it’s important to floss regularly and protect your gums.

Causes of Tooth Sensitivity
