Top 10 Dental Problems – Tooth Sensitivity

What causes tooth sensitivity?

Sensitive teeth can be caused by the following dental issues:

  • Worn tooth enamel from using a hard toothbrush and using a hard grip while brushing aggressively
  • Tooth erosion due to highly acidic foods and beverages
  • Tooth decay, worn leaky fillings and broken teeth that expose the dentin of your tooth
  • Gum recession that leaves your rot surface exposed
  • Grinding your teeth at night

Treating tooth sensitivity

After your dentist determines the reason or your sensitivity, he or she will treat the underlying cause. Treatment may be as simple as fixing a cavity or replacing a worn filling.
