Tooth sensitivity affects up to 40% of the population. It is experienced as a painful sensation in the teeth, often occurring after eating or drinking something hot, cold, sweet or acidic. The tooth comprises a hard enamel covering of soft dentine with an internal nerve. The dentine contains a large number of pores or tubules that run from the outside of the tooth to the central nerve.Over time, the enamel covering becomes thinner, providing less protection to external stimulation.

Tooth enamel is the hardest and most highly mineralised substance in the human body. It covers the outer layer of each tooth and is mostly made up of mineral, primarily hydroxyapatite. Because it is semi-translucent, its colour can vary from light yellow to a grayish white dependent upon its thickness. Enamel plays a very important role in protecting teeth from decay and sensitivity, so it is important to prevent it from erosion.

Gum disease is an inflammatory response caused by a bacterial plaque (biofilm) in your mouth that has not been removed when brushing your teeth. There are three stages of gum disease: 1- Gingivitis, 2- Periodontitis & 3- Advanced Periodontitis. Bacterial plaque forms on your teeth promoting gum disease if not treated. The risk of gum disease may be reduced through establishing a good oral health regime: brush your teeth with a Fluoride containing toothpaste like BioMin™ F for two minutes twice per day.
