5 Reasons You Have Sensitive Teeth

Eating or drinking may lose its appeal if it follows with a dull and sharp pain. But, what's life without being able to enjoy your favorite ice cream? Let's get to the bottom of your pain. Here are 5 potential causes of teeth sensitivity:

1. You aggressively brush your teeth with a hard grip.
2. You consume highly acidic foods and/or beverages.
3. You have tooth decay, a damaged filling or broken teeth.
4. Your gums are receding.
5. You grind your teeth.

Still can't zero in on the cause(s) of your pain? Schedule an appointment with us to make sure your sensitivity isn't due to an issue with your teeth. Catch it before it's too late.
