How to beat pangingilo or dental hypersensitivity

Last year, I’ve encountered a lot of pangingilo or dental hypersensitivity, there’s a tingling sensation whenever I eat hot or cold food or even I drink some cold beverages. Its hard to live a normal day when you encounter these teeth problems. I didn’t visited my dentist for years, but after experiencing the dental hypersensitivity, it means that I should visit my dentist and ask for check up and also for teeth cleaning.

I learned from the dentist that my teeth are no longer healthy, the dentist suggested that I need a deep cleaning and some treatment. After 3 dentist visit, the pangingilo is gone and I can now go back to my regular smile and the luxury of enjoying the food that Im eating.

According to a research study in 2011 the National Monitoring and Evaluation Dental Survey, there’s 48% of Filipinos who are suffering from a gum disease. Because of this gum disease the receeding gums are often accompanied with tooth sensitivity.

The tooth sensitivity is commonly caused by  wearing of enamel (the thin outer covering of the tooth), over-brushing, acidic food, and gum receding, pangingilo or dental hypersensitivity begins when the inner part of the tooth called the dentine is uncovered. Once this part of the tooth is exposed, various external triggers such eating sweets can easily agitate the nerves inside the tooth. This results to an oh-so-familiar brief yet sharp pain of tooth sensitivity. When left untreated, it can lead to further pain and swelling that can even lead to tooth removal.

To prevent this from happening, here are some tips from Gumtect Sensitive toothpaste that can help prevent pangingilo from ruining any future memories:
Avoid highly acidic food. Acidic food, such as meat, dairy, sugar, and coffee contribute to tooth sensitivity as it can tear away the tooth enamel. The key is to balance them with food high in alkaline like fruits, nuts, and vegetables.

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and desensitizing toothpaste. Using a toothbrush with hard bristles can tear down the tooth enamel, exposing it to the sensitive root area. Along with a soft-bristled toothbrush, desensitizing toothpaste would make sure that the teeth are well protected every day. Gumtect Sensitive has a Dynamic Desensitizing System that aids in preventing the pain caused by sensitive teeth as it protects the exposed dentine of the teeth. It also has Gumshield+ that helps repair, renew, and rejuvenate gums, and Active Anti-Cavity Protection that ensures fresh breath and strong teeth enamel.

Cleanse mouth regularly. Plaque that clings to teeth also causes tooth sensitivity. Drinking the recommended eight glasses of water every day would help get rid of them. For tougher and stickier plaques, use Gumtect Sensitive Mouthwash that easily cleanses in between teeth, tongue, and cheeks when on-the-go.

Visit your dentist. There is a general rule-of-thumb to visit your dentist at least twice a year. Even if you feel that your gums are in top shape, there are symptoms that are not easily recognized unless checked by a professional dentist. This can help in preventing the development of much tougher-to-treat problems.
Prevent pangingilo from stopping you from enjoying your foodie moments and indulge in that blissful spoonful of your favorite dessert without the irritating pain.
