Sensitive Teeth Treatment

Tooth sensitivity typically occurs when the enamel protecting the surface of your teeth wears away or recedes, exposing the underlying dentin layer. This exposure can result in teeth becoming sensitive, causing pain when you consume cold, hot, sweet, or acidic foods and drinks. Using a hard toothbrush, gum disease, and teeth grinding or clenching can all contribute to tooth sensitivity.

You can prevent tooth sensitivity by avoiding hard toothbrushes, practicing proper brushing techniques, and maintaining regular dental check-ups.
