Tooth Sensitivity - What You Can Do

If everyday activities like brushing, chewing, flossing, and drinking or eating hot or cold food items cause pain in your teeth, you may suffer from tooth sensitivity. Sensitivity is commonly caused by worn tooth enamel or gums that have receded to the point where the roots are exposed. To treat sensitivity, Dr. Alin Alkass recommends visiting your dentist to determine the cause and work out the best solution. Your dentist may suggest using fluoride treatments to build up enamel, using sensitivity toothpaste, or undergoing a sealant treatment to fill in receded gums.
