The Causes Of Teeth Sensitivity

Have you ever felt sensitivity in your teeth? While pain caused by sensitivity to hot or cold foods can be a sign of a cavity, it could also be a symptom of sensitive teeth.

Symptoms of Sensitive Teeth

People with sensitive teeth may experience pain in response to different causes. The most common causes include:

  • Hot foods and drinks
  • Cold foods and drinks
  • Cold air
  • Acidic foods and drinks
  • Sweet foods and drinks
  • Cold water
  • Brushing or flossing teeth
  • Alcohol based mouth rinses

Causes Of Sensitive Teeth

  • Using a hard toothbrush
  • Brushing your teeth too hard
  • Grinding your teeth at night
  • Eating or drinking acidic foods and drinks regularly

Other causes could include acid reflux as it results in the wearing down of your enamel, exposing the dentine.

Tooth decay and chipped teeth can also leave some dentine exposed causing sensitivity. In this case it is likely you’ll only feel the sensitivity in one particular area of your mouth.

Gum recession can leave sections of the tooth exposed and unprotected.

How To Treat Tooth Sensitivity

If your sensitivity is mild, you can try over the counter options. Try using a toothpaste that is specifically made for sensitive teeth. These toothpastes won’t contain irritating ingredients.

Choose a non-alcohol mouthwash as it will be less irritating.

Use a softer toothbrush and be more gentle when brushing.

If home treatments don’t work, talk to your dentist for their advice. They may apply fluoride gel to help strengthen your enamel.

Its official, we are the only Denplan Excel accredited practice in Scarborough!

Our mission was simple when we started the dental practice……to build a beautiful dental practice in Scarborough which offered patients the highest level of dental care possible.

What is Denplan Excel?

Denplan Excel is a certification for dental practices to demonstrate high standards for patients care, quality assurance and good communication. Denplan Excel ensures we follow effective processes for complying with all regulations above and beyond what we need to. We value patient care and and strive to maintain high levels of standards throughout the dental practice.

Our Denplan assessor came to inspect us in April 2021, they spent the day with us monitoring our processes and procedures to ensure all was correct and in order. They reviewed documentation relating to the safe and effective running of the practice along with further detailed audits and reports. They took the time to speak staff members to ensure training and knowledge about the practice had been passed along to them too.

Who recognises the certification?

Recognised by the Oral Health Foundation, Denplan Excel is a clinical governance programme. It is also approved by the UKAS.

How we feel about gaining the accreditation

Achieving the Denplan Excel accreditation is no easy challenge and we are so proud of the team at Newby Dental Practice for working together to achieve such a goal. At the time of writing no other dental practice in the Scarborough area is accredited.

It is a prestigious accreditation based on quality assurance and demonstrates a commitment to all our patients. It’s great for us to have this but it’s even better for our patients!
