Hi! I don't have any teeth or gum problem. My dentist said that I have a healthy teeth. But why my wisdom and molar tooth hurt and feel so sensitive every time I brush it?
Sometimes as we get older, our gums begin to recede slightly and this is normal with aging but sometimes this can cause the teeth to become more sensitive. Try brushing with a toothpaste for sensitive teeth like Sensodyne and use a soft tooth brush-using a firmer one can make the gums recede faster. If that doesnt work, your dentist has prescription strength "sensitive teeth" tooth paste you can try.I have very, very sensitive teeth from my gums receding plus I clench and grind at night which also has something to do with the matter as well and I was miserable. I couldnt drink cold milk or iced tea or eat iced cream or even if I used a tooth pick and would touch those teeth (my molars) with a wooden tooth pick, the pain would send me through the roof!! I couldnt stand for the dentist to even clean and descale those teeth but after using the prescription formula toothpaste for sensitive teeth, I have no more troubles! It is a little expensive-about $12 US dollars for a tube but the tube lasts me 3-4 mos but it is well worth the extra cost. Ask your dentist what to do for your sensitive teeth. It is a common issue so she/he should be able to tell you what is causing yours.
