Founded! New Ways to Overcome Sensitive Teeth

Founded! New Ways to Overcome Sensitive Teeth - Is a dollop of ice cream or sipping coffee make you wince? If yes, you may have sensitive teeth. Sensitive teeth is a problem suffered by most people, an estimated 3 out of 4 people suffer from sensitive teeth.


Sensitive teeth causes the teeth are too sensitive to the sensation of heat, cold, or sweet foods and drinks sour. Although many cases occur, but there is no cure for this dental problem. So far, special toothpaste for sensitive teeth and suck some sugarless candies are widely used to relieve the symptoms.

But researchers at the University of Hong Kong and the Anhui Medical University in China through a new study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, has found a way to cure sensitive teeth with natural methods.

According to the American Dental Association, tooth sensitivity caused by a number of factors such as overly aggressive when brushing teeth, cracked teeth and gum disease. Symptoms arise when the loss of the outer layer of the teeth, enamel, and a layer in which a softer, dentin, so the nerve in the tooth is more susceptible to stimuli.

The researchers conducted an experiment that aims to rebuild both enamel and dentin at the same time. To achieve this purpose, they used a type of glue that is used by the shells when attached to the object. They theorized that the adhesive can bond to dentin mineral with long enough to allow the process of dentin formation will occur continuously.

The experiments were performed with enamel and dentin smeared with glue and minerals participants. Minerals used for teeth usually damaged by exposure to the mineral. Then they found that when the teeth are exposed to both substances, any tooth reshaping enamel and dentin layers. When only exposed minerals, so only the dentin are formed.

"Our findings may be that this is a simple technique to induce remineralization of enamel and dentin simultaneously which can be used universally, but it also can be an innovative step in the fight against tooth sensitivity," the researchers concluded.
