Tooth sensitivity is tooth discomfort in one or more teeth that’s triggered by hot, cold, sweet, or sour foods and drinks, or even by breathing cold air. The pain can be sharp and sudden and can shoot deep into the nerve endings of your teeth.

Talking Consider "Oil Pulling" in addition to other corrective actions

Good reply and a very informative article.

OP, please post more details on your situation.

I used to brush my teeth too hard and ended up eroding a "crevice" (?) parallel to the gum line at my upper "fangs" (more so at the left one than the right, I'm right handed) and an area on the lower, left, outer gum line along my molars. I had minor receding gums at those locations too. The left fang and lower area were very sensitive to anything too sweet or to anything too sour or tart. Sensitive as in very high discomfort (not quite crossing over into the pain threshold.) How did I handle the situation? I avoided eating anything that caused any discomfort, easier brushing (I had to consciously make an effort to "ratchet it down"). I used "sensitive toothpaste" when necessary during periods of sensitivity (but bought generics and not the more way expensive name brands).

I didn't see it mentioned in the article but, not knowing your exact situation (more detail please), "Oil Pulling" might be helpful for you. After only a month and a few days of daily, 20 minute oil pulling (with refined coconut oil), I am a real advocate. The overall sensitivity is gone except an occasional mild, short lived (hours, not days) period at the left fang. And most amazing of all, I believe I am having my gums grow back, especially at the lower area. Why amazing? At my last dental check up the dental hygienist and I discussed the 3 areas and she told me that gums don't grow back. Umph! I beg to differ, young lady!

There are a couple of oil pulling threads on the C-D forums, one here in this forum (which I haven't had a chance to read yet) and the one I posted to in the "Alternative Medicine" forum.

Check out "Oil Pulling" here at C-D and research the web. Oil pulling might not solve your problem but the other benefits can only help your overall dental health.

Cheers.

Tooth sensitivity is something when your teeth become sensitive to any of the thing cold, hot or sweet. As, most of the people face this problem when the eat something cold like chill water.
