Symptoms of Tooth Sensitivity

Posted on 4/25/2017 by Anthony M. DiCesare

When you don't have enough enamel on your teeth, or the dentin of your tooth has become damaged in some way, your teeth may become sensitive. This can be nothing more than a nuisance in some instances, but it can also be a very big problem as the sensitivity increases. If you notice that your teeth tend to hurt when you eat, you may want to go in and speak with your dentist about why.

Symptoms You Have Tooth Sensitivity

The main symptom of tooth sensitivity that nearly everyone experiences first, is that their teeth hurt when they drink or eat. There are four main types of sensitivity that can ignite the pain: hot, cold, bitter/sour, and sweet. Any foods or beverages that fall into any of these categories could put your mouth into a great deal of pain when you consume them.

If you notice that biting, and/or chewing hurts, then you may also have problems with sensitive teeth. Your teeth could be weak, which is likely what is causing your sensitivity in the first place. By chewing and biting on sensitive teeth, you increase the chances your teeth are going to leave you in pain.

The Pain of Sensitive Teeth

There are two main types of pain when it comes to sensitive teeth. Sometimes the pain is acute and lasts for a brief moment, then goes away. This is often what happens at the early stages of sensitive teeth. After more damage to your teeth has occurred, the pain then tends to linger.

This is the other type of pain, and signals you need to get your teeth looked at by a dentist. This pain could be due to enamel erosion, tooth decay, or even a filling that isn't sitting right.
