Do you feel a sharp pain when eating or drinking something hot or cold?
One cause of sensitivity is dental erosion, which is the loss of tooth enamel. As the enamel wears away, the underlying layer of dentin is unprotected, which contains pores that run through to the tooth’s nerve. It is this exposure that results in a person with sensitive teeth experiencing discomfort when consuming something hot or cold.
The things that may cause you to get sensitive teeth may be brushing too hard, eating or drinking too much acid, receding gums, grinding your teeth and gum disease can negatively impact your tooth enamel.
