Icing in the teeth, or hypersensitivity in the teeth, is a short-term, painful reaction to cold and heat. If the patient is seriously afflicted, almost any food will cause pain and discomfort in the oral cavity. It can be difficult for the patient to brush the teeth and take care of the enamel and gums. The cause of the problem is enamel hyperesthesia.

The problem can develop into caries, cause enamel demineralisation, periodontal diseases, mechanical damage to the tooth and other dental problems. In our dental practice, we will quickly find the cause of the hypersensitivity in the tooth enamel, and choose the optimal treatment based on that.

How is enamel sensitivity treated?

Depending on the cause of the problem, the dentist may prescribe fluoride treatment of the enamel, various rinses, gels and pastes for home use. For more complex cases, enamel coating with filling materials is used.

Is it possible to whiten the teeth if one has increased sensitivity in the enamel?

Only after consultation with a dentist. In case of hypersensitivity, we do not recommend teeth whitening, but if you really want a white smile, the dentist will choose a gentle technology that will eliminate further trauma to the enamel.

Is there any prevention?

Yes, to reduce the risk of developing enamel hyperaesthesia, it will help with thorough oral hygiene, prophylactic cleaning of the teeth, having a good and correct diet (with sufficient phosphorus and calcium), as well as limiting the intake of juices and berries. In addition, it is important to visit the dentist regularly to take care of your oral and dental health.
