Is It Gum Or Tooth Sensitivity?

Whether you have sensitive teeth or sensitive gums, there are minor differences you need to be aware of before seeking treatment. 

Key takeaway:

  • Gum sensitivity is caused by gingivitis while tooth sensitivity can be caused by tooth fractures, cracks or cavities.
  • Gum sensitivity causes the gums to be swollen and tender while tooth sensitivity causes piercing pain when taking hot or cold foods.
  • Sensitive teeth can be treated by a fluoride gel while gum sensitivity may require gum grafting.

Seek the advice of your dentist regarding treatment as these conditions can worsen, causing complications. At home, maintain proper oral hygiene daily.
