Has drinking your morning coffee become torture? Do you dread eating ice cream? Don't let tooth sensitivity spoil your day.
Tooth sensitivity is among the most common dental problems. This refers to a very sharp pain that is felt when teeth come into contact with various triggers such as hot, cold or acidic foods or drinks, cool or cold air, and dental floss, for example. Pain is such that some people regretfully avoid the pleasure of eating delicious ice cream or drinking a nice hot coffee, for fear of feeling pain.
The main cause of tooth sensitivity is the deterioration of the enamel that protects the sensitive layer of the tooth, called dentin. When dentin is exposed to one of these triggers, it activates nerve endings, which leads to pain. Gingival recession (or receding gums) can also cause dentin exposure.
