Tooth Sensitive To Heat
« on: May 04, 2018, 05:20:00 PM »
Tooth Sensitive To Heat A tooth sensitive to heat is usually a sign that the nerve inside the tooth is dying. Unfortunately this process cannot be stopped or reversed once it has started. At some point in the very near future, you will probably need to get the tooth taken out, or get a root canal treatment if you  want to keep the tooth.
But let's back up a little bit first, and look at the main reasons WHY you might have a tooth sensitive to heat.
 
The FIRST reason is a cavity in your tooth. A cavity in a tooth is full of bacteria. Actually, the cavity is CAUSED BY the bacteria in dental plaque. Anyway, as time goes by, the cavity gradually gets bigger and deeper, until it reaches the stage where it is very close to the nerve deep inside the tooth.

  • The microscopic bacteria can then get into the nerve of the tooth and the nerve becomes inflamed. Read more about this at   TOOTH NERVE PAIN.
  • The SECOND reason you might have a tooth sensitive to heat is a recent filling. If the filling was deep, then it is very close to the tooth nerve. Anytime a dentist has to work on a deep cavity or filling, he will be traumatising the nerve. There's no way around this, if he is to remove the bacteria from the cavity and so prevent the cavity getting any bigger.
  • The THIRD reason is a new filling being a little too big, or too high, when you bite down. If this happens, then the tooth is being constantly "tapped" on by the opposing tooth (the one it bites on when you bring your upper and lower teeth together).
  • The FOURTH reason is trauma; if your tooth gets a knock or a blow for some reason. Maybe you got hit in the mouth by a baseball, or you fell over and knocked a tooth on the ground. Or maybe you were in some sort of accident, like a car crash or a skiing fall. However it happens, the tooth takes a severe knock, and this disturbs the tiny nerves and tiny blood vessels at the tip of the root.
