When the hard protective layer of the tooth called enamel has been worn away, the dentin layer is exposed and tooth sensitivity can occur. This is caused by the movement of fluid within tiny tubules located in the dentin.
The exposed areas of your teeth can cause tooth pain and can even affect or change your eating, drinking and breathing habits. Hot and cold drinks or food, sweet or sour foods, and even cold air can all cause pain. Another reason you may be experiencing tooth pain… clenching or grinding your teeth!
Prevent periodontal disease (gum disease) and receded gums. Using a soft-bristled brush or an electric toothbrush and having regular professional dental cleanings are all beneficial. Prevention is the most effective way of saving your teeth. Your teeth will thank you for it!
