THE MAIN CAUSE OF THE SENSITIVITY TO COLD IS THE LOOSENING OF YOUR TEETH.
Your teeth are sensitive to cold and this sensitivity is always present? Whether a cold liquid or air, you don’t have longer to endure this pain. The primary cause of this sensitivity to cold is a loosening of your teeth. In other words, the gum was dropped to the bottom of the tooth and the root is exposed in the mouth. Visually the bottom of the tooth appears to have a hollow and appears more yellowish .
This loosening was most probably caused by inadequate and excessive brushing. The sensitivity comes from the wear of the root.
HOW IS TEETH SENSITIVITY TREATED
TREATMENT: RECOVERY TOOTH ROOTS WITH ARTIFICIAL ENAMEL (COMPOSITE)
The artificial enamel commonly called “composite or white filling ” is a materials ” shutter composed of quartz particles and silica. Aesthetic and conservative, composites contain no lead, mercury, unlike amalgam.
Composite restorations could match the color of the tooth, making them almost invisible repairs thanks to the variety of color available. The solution to the loosening of sensitive teeth is a simple application of the composite against the deficient part of the tooth. Cosmetic results and desensitization are instantaneous.
