Dentists have also recognized a close link between these two symptoms i.e. teeth sensitivity and gum problems. Receding gums is one of the main causes of tooth sensitivity, and the most common cause of receding gums is gum problem. When dentine inside teeth is exposed, revealing tiny holes inside it, it can affect the nerve inside the tooth leading to sensitivity. Reports show that almost half (44%) of people with teeth sensitivity opt to change their toothbrushing habits so that they are able to avoid the affected areas4 of their teeth and gums. This can lead to a sticky film of bacteria called plaque.

When plaque starts to build up on the teeth and it will cause swollen gum, bad breath, and uncomfortable when brushing or flossing. Dentists agree that both these symptoms need attention and their patients would benefit from taking control of the two problems as soon as possible.

According to Dr Cheah Chia Wei, Lecturer, Department Of Restorative Dentistry Of Dental Faculty, University Malaya “Teeth sensitivity and gum problems are prevalent in the country; yet, such issues go under detected and under-treated." Adding to his speech, "The growing number of sufferers we see are also not proactively managing either symptom. These two issues are inter-related and would be required to be simultaneously addressed".
