Why Are Your Teeth Sensitive To Sugar?

If your teeth sensitive to sugar, you may wonder, Why are such things happen to me? This likely means there is something wrong in your teeth might be the enamel of your teeth is damaged. There are many causes of why your teeth sensitive to sugar.

Tooth sensitivity is a common name for dentin hypersensitivity or root sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is very common and it has been estimated that approximately half the population experiences tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity can come and go over time.

Brushing too hard can make you sensitive to sugar as it loses your enamel. It is, even more, worse if you are enjoying acidic food like citrus fruits and pickles. These activities can expose the sensitive inner layer of the teeth. If the outer layer of the enamel is damaged, sugary foods or other irritants have easier access to the nerve center, which can cause sharp pain.

One of the most common reasons for sensitivity to sugar is a cavity. A cavity is nothing but a hole in the tooth which can grow bigger and deeper over time.  The bacteria in your mouth make acids and when plaque seize to your teeth, the acids can eat away at the outermost layer of the tooth, called the enamel. The acids can continue to make their way through the enamel, and the inside parts of your tooth can begin to decay.  Absolutely, it can make you feel a lot of pain when sugar gets into the cavity.
