Sensitivity to Sweet, Sour, Hot or Cold: Common Causes

Some of the most common causes of sensitive teeth include:

Brushing: Brushing shortly after acid challenge can cause the enamel to be more easily worn away, as during this time the enamel is softened and more vulnerable. Brushing too vigorously can also cause receding gums, causing further exposure of the dentine

Gum disease (also known as gingivitis) causes inflamed and sore gum tissue. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis. Periodontitis is when gum disease gets worse and damages the tissues and bone that support the teeth. One sign of periodontitis is sensitive teeth, as the receding gums leave dentine exposed

Teeth Grinding: If you grind your teeth when you sleep or during the day, or if you clench your teeth, you may be wearing down enamel and exposing the underlying dentine layer of your tooth

Receding Gums: Receding gums can be caused by conditions such as gum disease, which can expose the tooth's dentine and cause sensitivity. Brushing too vigorously can also cause receding gums

    I got a root canal treatment done from OralH and I am very satisfied with the whole experience. The doctors are punctual as well as professional.
    I was always informed in advance about the procedure to be undertaken and the doctor even followed up on phone if I was doing fine.

    During my years (2011-2014) as Principal of an international school in Gurgaon there were times when I needed to visit a dentist, for a check-up or for other issues. When I first needed a dentist I walked into Dr Tandon's dental reception and found it both well-equipped with modern dental supplies and manned by competent and courteous staff.

    OralH has been my dentist since 2012. From the outset, my experience has always been positive. The Family Dr. Nishi Tandon and her team are caring, professional and friendly. The treatment room and waiting room are bright and welcoming and a sincere warm welcome always awaits you when you turn up for treatment. I like the fact that they explain everything prior to treatment, and the doctors are always willing to answer any questions.

    I became a patient of Dr.Nishi at the recommendation of a Family friend. At the time, I was experiencing pain in several areas that was not addressed in my previous dental care. I knew on my first visit I made the right choice. Dr.Nishi sat with me and explained in detail the areas that needed immediate attention.
