Tooth sensitivity inflicts significant pain and discomfort. Many people who suffer from sensitivity avoid basic behaviors due to intense pain. Sensitivity occurs when the dentin, a porous tissue in your teeth, becomes exposed. The dentin has microscopic channels, called tubules, which are pathways to the nerve. When dentinal tubules are exposed, due to receding gum tissue or enamel loss, nerves are more easily triggered by certain stimuli causing tooth sensitivity. Brush with a sensitivity toothpaste with soft-bristled toothbrush, which will help prevent gum loss. Avoid acidic foods and drinks..

Severe tooth sensitivity occurs due to caries, attrition , cervical abrasion or gingival recession. So treat accordingly. You can prescribe vantej toothpaste or hydent pro by Abbott its the toothpaste based on biomin therapy. Mostly sensitivity toothpaste based on novamin so i advice you would suggest hydent pro yes its littke bit costly but worth the results.

If tooth is carious . First go for IOPA then plan treatment accordingly. Toothpaste is temporary solution.

U can definitely recommend a sensitivity tooth paste ,but thats a temporary solution , since there is also gross carious decay of tooth, u can do the excavation and pack with zoe restoration and recall the patient after 4 weeks.

Thank you doctor
