Dental Term

Sensitive Teeth

Tooth sensitivity is a common condition characterized by discomfort or pain when consuming hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods and drinks. It occurs when the tooth enamel or dentin is exposed, allowing stimuli to reach the nerves inside the tooth. Common causes of tooth sensitivity include gum recession, enamel erosion, tooth decay, or teeth grinding. Using desensitizing toothpaste, practicing good oral hygiene, and avoiding triggers can help manage tooth sensitivity. Dentists can provide additional treatments, such as fluoride applications or dental bonding, to alleviate sensitivity.
