Patients with tooth sensitivity feel pain when they consume foods or drinks that are hot, cold, sweet, or acidic.

Sensitivity happens when tooth enamel, which usually protects the tooth’s pulp and dentin, is thinned from repeated exposure to acidity and extreme temperatures.

Sensitivity can also occur as a result of:

  • Receding gums
  • Tooth grinding during sleep
  • Chipped or fractured teeth
  • Tooth whitening
  • Orthodontics
  • fillings

Talk to your dental professional, and they will examine the affected teeth and recommend treatment to reduce your sensitivity.
