Malnutrition is most common among women in the 20-40 age group. Women who follow an unbalanced diet without adequate intake of vitamins and minerals may have decreased salivary secretion. Lack of saliva reduces the natural mineralization of the teeth. Prolonged demineralization can contribute to the process of erosion of tooth enamel. This, in turn, leads to increased tooth sensitivity due to exposed dentine. Girls and women who suffer from anorexia and bulimia, while spitting up food, expose their teeth to severe and irreversible damage - stomach acids cause erosion of tooth enamel.Read more
How to prevent sensitivity of teeth and gums, what helps?W
Good oral hygiene is essential to prevent tooth sensitivity:
Regular and correct brushing of teeth.
Using soft toothbrushes.
Using dental floss to remove food debris and plaque between teeth.
Mouthwash has a disinfecting and refreshing effect. It can and should be used at least after every brushing of your teeth, or more often. Mouthwashes can also help with bad breath.

How can we help you?
The most important measures to protect your teeth from dental disease are regularly brushing your teeth correctly and removing food debris from and between your teeth after meals. Natural depressions, or grooves, on the chewing surface of molars are ideal places for bacteria to grow due to the inability to clean them well enough.
In such cases, covering the teeth with a sealant or filling the fissures with a special dental filling material will be effective prophylaxis. Once the fissures are sealed, the grooves become smooth and shallow, making cleaning easier and bacteria can no longer grow there.
Effective treatment of tooth sensitivity in the presence of micro cracks in the enamel or an open tooth neck - fluoridation, dental varnish coating. Fluoride polish strengthens teeth and promotes regeneration.
In addition to these, diseases of gums and supporting tissues can be treated by simple procedures like scaling and flap surgeries which will significantly reduce the amount of tooth sensitivity.
