Recognizing dental problems or symptoms of oral disease early is essential. Firstly, this can help ensure that you receive the right treatment. Secondly, it helps prevent them from becoming more serious. Our helpful guide will help you learn about some of the most common dental and oral problems.
1.TOOTH SENSITIVITY Dentin hypersensitivity is a common oral health condition. If you have sensitive teeth, you may often experience discomfort. Also, at times experience short/sharp pain. This occurs when the affected teeth get exposed to extreme temperatures. For instance, when eating or drinking hot or cold beverages. All these and more can make daily life very uncomfortable.
2.ENAMEL EROSION Did you know that foods and beverages that are high in acid can wear away and/or damage the enamel? Everyday things like soft drinks, and tea/coffee can all contribute to enamel erosion. Some common signs of eroded enamel are increased sensitivity and yellowish discolouration. Enamel erosion mostly leads to an increase in the risk of developing cavities or infections.
3.GUM DISEASE Gum disease is a very common oral health condition. Most adults have gum disease to some degree, and the majority of us will experience it at least once during our lives. In the early stages, it is known as gingivitis. Gum disease can cause red, swollen and bleeding gums – particularly when brushing or flossing your teeth. Gingivitis is in most cases painful. But it is important to be on the lookout for these other symptoms as much as possible. Left untreated, gum disease can ultimately lead to serious oral health problems. Gingivitis can also progress to periodontitis, a more aggressive stage of gum disease.
4.DRY MOUTH Saliva helps to fight tooth decay by naturally washing away the acids that cause enamel erosion. It also helps manage gum disease-causing plaque bacteria. Occasional dry mouth is common (especially if you’re dehydrated). However, it could become a persistent problem if left untreated. Similarly, it is also seen as a potential side effect of certain medications.
5.BAD BREATH (HALITOSIS) Chronic bad breath (known as halitosis) can be an embarrassing and unpleasant condition. Firstly, one has persistent bad breath that won’t go away on its own. Secondly, it is the outcome of an underlying oral health problem, such as an infection; dry mouth; or gum disease. Thirdly, dental problems like cavities contribute to bad breath. This is by creating spaces in your mouth for odour-causing bacteria to become trapped.
-Why are my teeth sensitive?
Enamel wear and/or receding gums are the most common reasons for sensitivity. Cold or hot items stimulate certain triggers around nerves in this exposed area. As a result, one feels the characteristic short, sharp jolt of tooth sensitivity pain.
-Are sensitive teeth a sign of a more serious dental problem?
A cracked tooth or a cavity often leads to tooth decay. Tooth decay further leads to sensitivity. If you are feeling any tooth pain or discomfort, visit your dentist and seek advice.
-What can I do to help my sensitive teeth?
Talk to your dentist about the symptoms you are experiencing. Your dentist can confirm whether or not tooth sensitivity is the cause of your tooth pain. They will advise you on how to best care for sensitive teeth.
Mechanism of Action FAQs
-How long does Sensodyne toothpaste take to work?
Some Sensodyne variants like Rapid Relief can relieve sensitivity in as little as 60 seconds. It’s important to continue brushing twice a day. This ensures lasting tooth sensitivity relief. If sensitivity still persists visit your dentist.
-How often should I use Sensodyne toothpaste?
Use Sensodyne as your daily toothpaste, brushing twice a day, every day, for lasting tooth sensitivity relief. With Sensodyne, you can also get the benefits of cavity protection and fresher breath. All this to help you maintain sensitivity-free teeth.
-Can I use Sensodyne toothpaste every day?
Yes, Sensodyne is specially formulated for daily use. It helps in relieving and protecting against tooth sensitivity. Furthermore, it is also the No.1 dentist-recommended toothpaste brand. One can use it every day to help relieve tooth sensitivity. This also helps prevent it from returning.
-What is NovaMin and how is it used in Sensodyne toothpaste?
NovaMin helps in building a robust layer over the exposed inner part of your tooth. Therefore it acts as a shield for your sensitive tooth. This layer in return helps prevent triggers, like hot and cold liquids, from causing pain.
-Can kids use Sensodyne toothpaste?
Sensodyne toothpaste is not recommended for use by children under the age of 12. Sensitivity is rarely a problem in children. Check with your child’s dentist for appropriate advice and recommendation.
Sensodyne toothpaste is the No.1 dentist-recommended toothpaste brand for sensitive teeth. It provides the benefits of fluoride, cavity protection, fresher breath, and whitening. Sensodyne provides lasting relief for sensitive teeth, with twice-daily brushing.
How do you treat sensitive teeth?
Good oral care habits make it easy to manage tooth sensitivity. Sensitivity can get worse with time. With twice a day brushing, with Sensodyne, one can easily manage symptoms and sensitivity protection.
Find the right product for your condition
Sensodyne Sensitivity & Gum toothpaste is clinically proven to relieve tooth sensitivity and improve gum health. Its dual-action formula works in two ways. It builds a protective layer over sensitive areas, effectively relieving tooth sensitivity. It works by targeting and removing plaque bacteria. This helps reduce gum problems. As a result, you can deal with both Sensitivity and Gum concerns in one specially formulated toothpaste.
Rapid Relief toothpaste formula of Sensodyne contains a unique formulation with stannous fluoride that builds a protective barrier over sensitive areas of your teeth, so you can relieve sensitivity pain in 60 seconds and keep it from coming back with twice-daily brushing.
Sensodyne Repair and Protect toothpaste help repair, strengthen, and protect sensitive areas of your teeth and provides lasting sensitivity by building a repairing layer over the vulnerable areas of your teeth, protecting them from triggers that cause sensitivity pain.
The Complete Protection toothpaste from Sensodyne is a complete sensitivity toothpaste because it provides long-lasting sensitivity protection and protects against plaque helps maintain healthy gums and restores your teeth’s natural whiteness.
