Tooth Sensitivity FAQs
-Why are my teeth sensitive?
Enamel wear and/or receding gums are the most common reasons for sensitivity. Cold or hot items stimulate certain triggers around nerves in this exposed area. As a result, one feels the characteristic short, sharp jolt of tooth sensitivity pain.
-Are sensitive teeth a sign of a more serious dental problem?
A cracked tooth or a cavity often leads to tooth decay. Tooth decay further leads to sensitivity. If you are feeling any tooth pain or discomfort, visit your dentist and seek advice.
-What can I do to help my sensitive teeth?
Talk to your dentist about the symptoms you are experiencing. Your dentist can confirm whether or not tooth sensitivity is the cause of your tooth pain. They will advise you on how to best care for sensitive teeth.
