Sensitive Teeth

Tooth sensitivity can be a pain and can prevent you from enjoying some of your favorite food and beverages. The good news is there are many ways to control sensitive teeth.

What Causes Tooth Sensitivity

You get sensitive teeth when your gums pull back and expose the surface beneath, called the dentin. This soft layer makes up the inner part and roots, which have thousands of tiny tubes that lead to the tooth’s nerve center (the pulp). These channels allow the trigger (for example, the hot, cold, or sweet food) to reach the nerve in your tooth, which results in the pain you feel.
