Ask Your Dentist: Sensitive Teeth

My teeth had gotten pretty sensitive to hot and cold. It really hurt. Ask your dentist about treating sensitive teeth.


Dentline: Sensitive Teeth

Do you wince when your teeth are exposed to sweets, hot and cold drinks, or cold air? If so, you may be suffering from sensitive teeth.


Diagnosing Sensitive Teeth

One of the most common problems in dentistry is sensitive teeth. If you have sensitive teeth, you may feel discomfort when they are exposed to cold air, hot or cold food and beverages, or sweets. There are many possible causes for the problem, including improper stresses on teeth, loss of the tooth’s protective enamel layer, and occasionally some dental procedures.
