Sensitive and sore teeth is a common problem, that can be very unpleasant. Luckily, there are treatment options available.

Tooth decay, fractured and chipped teeth, abscesses, receding gums and poor dental care can all contribute to sore and sensitive teeth. Teeth sensitivity can come and go. It’s usually best to visit your dentist to get checked out, before it develops or becomes harder to treat. Treatment options can include avoiding particular food and drinks, using a special toothpaste and toothbrush and specialised treatments such as fillings, root canals, crowns and tooth extractions.

Symptoms of sensitive teeth

Often, pain or discomfort is the first sign of a deeper problem. The pain may come and go, or gradually worsen. You may notice sharp pain when you chew or increased pain when you drink hot or cold liquids. Sweet and acidic foods can also aggravate the sensitivity or soreness you're experiencing.

Sometimes, simply breathing with your mouth open, or going outside into the cold air can make the sensitivity or pain worse. Sensitivity in your teeth can mean the inner dentine layer of your tooth is exposed. This happens when the tooth's white outer layer of enamel enamel has worn away. 

Causes of sensitive teeth

Unprotected dentine is one of the biggest reasons you’ll experience tooth sensitivity. This can happen for a number of reasons. Common causes include tooth decay, receding gums, chips or cracks in your tooth and a build up of plaque. Other causes can be:

  • Acidic food, drink or mouthwash
  • Bruxism, or grinding and clenching your teeth
  • Brushing your teeth too hard
  • Some tooth whitening products

Maintain regular visits to your dentist and hygienist to help keep you on top of your oral health habits. Sometimes we can all do with a regular reminder about the best care routines for healthy teeth.

Get prepared

When you book at one of our dental practices for sore or sensitive teeth, you just want your pain to end. That’s understandable. It’s useful to think ahead about what your dentist will need to know to diagnose and treat you.

Generally your dentist will ask you about your medical history and then thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, gums, jaw, tongue, throat, sinuses, ears, nose and neck. You may also need an x-ray, depending on what your dentist suspects might be the cause of your problem.

Your dentist will ask you some questions about the pain, such as:

  • When did the pain start?
  • How severe is it?
  • Where do you feel sensitivity?
  • What makes it worse?
  • What makes it better?

Think about your answers to these questions before your appointment. Being prepared can speed up the diagnosis.
