Get To The Root Of Your Tooth Sensitivity

, ,

Although tooth sensitivity is a common problem, it should never be ignored. Those sharp painful sensations you experience when you drink or eat something hot or cold could be your body’s way of telling your something important about your dental health.

There are a myriad of causes for tooth sensitivity. If your teeth are sensitive to extreme temperatures and produce aching all over, this could be an indication that the dentin (or protective outer layer) of your teeth is worn down. Without dentin’s protection, your teeth stimuli are exposed. Acidic drinks and foods as well as medical conditions such as acid reflux or bulimia can cause the dentin layer to wear down, resulting in tooth sensitivity.
