When is tooth sensitivity normal?
Tooth sensitivity after tooth whitening
Is very normal to experience some level of sensitivity when you’re going through a teeth whitening treatment.
A professional can help you with your tooth sensitivity. And that’s just one of the reasons why professional teeth whitening is superior.
Tooth sensitivity after dental treatment
Unsurprisingly to most, you’re bound to experience some sort of pain/sensitivity.
Take tooth extraction for example, even though the process itself is pain-free, the gums after feel slightly sensitive.
Another example of this is teeth whitening as discusses earlier. it’s normality allows for the treatment to be simple, quick, and cheap with the help of a dentist.
Wisdom teeth causing sensitivity – when’s it normal?
Unfortunately, a lot of people have to experience the dread that is wisdom teeth as they grow older.
With this, it’s normal to experience some tenderness as the wisdom teeth break through the gum – this is normal. Sensitivity is normal when its temporary, maybe often but not for an extended period of time, and not agonising.
Not all sensitivity (when on the topic of wisdom teeth) is normal. If you’re experiencing extreme discomfort/pain then it’s not technically classed as sensitivity because it’s lasting, unbearable, and constant.
It could be one of the signs of needing your wisdom teeth removed.
Sensitivity when a child looses baby teeth
On the flip side to growing up, you have children who are beginning to loose their baby teeth. An expose root can cause sensitivity, especially when exposed to food of temperature – example being, ice-cream (cold) and hot chocolate (hot).
This is all part of growing up and it’s completely normal.
