Why do I have tooth sensitivity?

Woman with a tooth pain

Many people suffer from tooth sensitivity affecting one or more teeth. Sensitivity can
occur when you eat or drink something hot, cold, sweet, or sour. The pain can be sharp
and sudden and can shoot deep into the nerve endings of your teeth.

What Causes Sensitive Teeth?

  • Gum recession -brushing too hard or grinding your teeth can
    wear down enamel and expose the tooth root.
  • Tooth decay or Broken/Chipped teeth.
  • Gum disease (gingivitis). Inflamed and sore gums can pull back
    and expose the roots of your teeth.
