What is tooth sensitivity and why do I have it?

Patients with tooth sensitivity can feel pain when consuming foods and beverages that are hot or cold, sweet or acidic.

Tooth sensitivity comes from thinned tooth enamel. Our tooth enamel is supposed to protect our teeth from daily use such as chewing, biting, crunching, and grinding.

In some patients, tooth sensitivity may be a result of:

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

Your dentist will examine your affected teeth and advocate treatment to reduce your sensitivity.
