Tooth sensitivity affects a number of people and can cause intense discomfort when consuming certain certain foods or drinks.
The pain experienced can vary greatly, from a dull ache in certain teeth to shooting pain throughout the mouth.
We always recommend that people seek advice from a dental professional so the source of the problem can be identified and treated.
There are a number of treatments and products that can help to manage this condition.
There are a number of causes for tooth sensitivity. Tooth decay can certainly cause sensitivity, but temporary discomfort can also be experienced after tooth whitening. Enamel wear, which can also cause sensitivity, is caused either chemically by a sugar rich or acidic food or drink or mechanically through hard brushing or using a brush with hard bristles, tooth grinding, grinding and certain trauma injuries.
