Did you ever drink something hot or cold and feel a sharp, shooting pain in one or more of your teeth? You probably have tooth sensitivity: potentially caused by a myriad of different problems.
Here is a list of things that can cause sensitive teeth:
- Receeding Gums
- A Cracked Tooth
- Teeth Grinding (Also known as Bruxism)
- Whitening Products (Especially if overused.) Note: Some people have a natural sensitivity to whitening products, so it's common to have some sensitivity after use.
- Gum Disease
- Brushing your teeth too hard or with a hard bristled toothbrush.
- Foods that have a high acid content, like citrus fruits, tomatoes, vinegar.....diet soda....
- Desensitizing Toothpaste (there is a wide variety available at the drugstore)
- Brushing with warm water or rinsing with warm salt water
- Add foods rich in vitamin D to your diet.
