Sensitive teeth can hinder your joy of drinking tea and having ice-cream. The cause of sensitive teeth is worn out enamel, which can occur from vigorous brushing, gum disease, tooth decay, teeth grinding or cracking.

Tooth enamel is the strongest substance in the human body. This semi translucent, hard, outer layer of the teeth has an important job: protecting teeth from the daily wear and tear of biting and chewing, as well as temperature extremes from hot or cold foods and drinks. Enamel also guards teeth against the erosive effects of acids and chemicals.

Plaque is a soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth and contains millions of bacteria. The bacteria in plaque cause tooth decay and gum disease if they are not removed regularly through brushing and flossing.When you eat, the bacteria in plaque use the sugars in your food to produce acids that eat away at the tooth enamel. Repeated attacks cause the enamel to break down, eventually resulting in a cavity (or hole) in the tooth surface.

Maintaining good oral health is essential to reducing bad breath, as bacteria that builds up on the back of your tongue or in between your teeth is the main culprit. Bad breath can be caused by foods, smoking, dry mouth, medical conditions, gum disease, and sinus conditions. No wonder dental hygiene is such big business.

Teeth are made up of enamel, dentine, cementum and pulp. They help you break down food so it’s easier to swallow and digest. Their frequent use and exposure to food, drink, air and bacteria causes teeth, particularly the enamel, to wear down. Worn teeth can be sensitive, painful and are more prone to disease and decay. If you take steps to strengthen your teeth they’ll stay healthier and last a lot longer.

A thick white or creamy lesion and an inflamed tongue are the usual signs of an oral thrush. These lesions are very sensitive, thus touching them can cause them to bleed. Oral thrush can be caused by a very weak immune system. It can also be an adverse effect of using too much corticosteroids and antibiotics. Anti- fungal medications are the drug of choice for this kind of condition but there are also home remedies for white tongue that are equally effective.
