Where Sugar Sensitivity To Your Teeth Could Come From

Posted on 7/10/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Where Sugar Sensitivity To Your Teeth Could Come FromThere are many different reasons for a person to suffer from tooth sensitivity. It is a sign of a few different problems with your teeth. If the cause of your sensitive teeth is a sugar sensitivity, you may think you know what caused it.

You picture the days of your youth gobbling down all the candy you can get your hands on. As an adult, you should ask yourself is that what caused your sugar sensitivity or is something else to blame.

What is It?
Sugar sensitivity is a condition where you feel a sensation in your teeth when you eat something sweet. It does not necessarily mean that you eat too much sugar. It can happen no matter how much sweet food you eat. The amount of pain or sensation a person feels will vary.

Causes of Sugar Sensitivity

It is possible that you can develop sugar sensitivity over time. Exposer to highly acidic foods and brushing too hard can lead to issues with sensitivity. These things can remove the enamel on the front of teeth. That exposes the inner parts of the tooth and can lead to those feelings of pain when irritated. If the enamel is exposed, sweet foods can easily cause the sensitivity.

What to Do About It
If you suffer from sugar sensitivity, you can take some steps to help. Turn to a soft bristled toothbrush. This can prevent you from wearing down the enamel. Don't brush too hard. There is such a thing as brushing too hard or too long. Take it a little easier. Use a desensitizing toothpaste. These products have ingredients that will reduce the sensitivity of the teeth.

The best thing you can do is to prevent the sugar sensitivity from happening. Learn how to properly brush your teeth and make sure you have the right kind of toothbrush. Avoid foods that can damage the enamel.

Taking these steps can help prevent any problems with sugar sensitivity.
