Teeth can cause intense pain for patients from London, with sudden sharp strikes emanating from the roots or nerve endings. Common triggers are temperatures, such as the air breathed in and hot or cold foods. Tooth roots containing dentinal tubules transmit stimuli to the tooth’s nerve centre and are covered by dentin for protection. When dentin becomes exposed due to enamel erosion, the dentinal tubules are also exposed and transmit sensitive stimuli straight to the nerve endings, which is felt as sharp pain. Knowing what causes tooth sensitivity can help identify how best to prevent tooth pain.
