Sensitive Teeth

What causes sensitive teeth?

  • Dentine, the layer of the tooth beneath the enamel, becomes exposed
  • Bacteria enter the pulp, the live part of the tooth
  • The pulp becomes inflamed


We seal the sensitive dentine with either:

  • Filling
  • Dentine sealant
  • Concentrated fluoride varnish


To prevent sensitive teeth there are several things you can do on a daily basis to help:

  • Effective cleaning to remove acidic plaque
  • Gentle use of a soft toothbrush to prevent wear or a powered brush with a pressure indicator light
  • Using a toothpaste containing fluoride as directed by manufacturer
  • Reduction of acid in the diet e.g. fizzy drinks, citrus fruits and wine
  • Consider daily use of desensitizing toothpaste
  • Do not rinse out toothpaste after brushing to retain correct fluoride levels

What Our Patients Say About Us

  • We had a wonderful first visit to El Nashar yesterday. What a gem of a surgery! From start to finish our visit was impeccable. All the staff are clearly super happy in their work and made us feel so welcome. We had a smooth and informative check in from the lovely reception team then an outstanding check up by our dentist, Mark and his dental nurse. Mark put us all at ease immediately. He talked us through every step, took an X-ray which he then ran through and discussed any follow up treatment. He gave the children a thorough and fun examination and explained the progress they are making while at the same time finding out about them and keeping them relaxed. The surgery is impeccably clean and attractive with a lovely Egyptian theme throughout which my 10 year old really appreciated. Even the payment process was a joy thanks to Tiffany who talked me through their excellent dental plan with such attention to detail and literally the biggest smile! The team really go over and above to make your visit a positive one, Tiffany even noticed my cold sore and recommended a treatment for me! We are already looking forward to our next visit and couldn’t recommend the team more highly.
