Why You May Be Experiencing Tooth Sensitivity

Knowing the actual cause of tooth sensitive will require patients to visit their dentist. In this blog post, we will explore some of the most common reasons for tooth sensitivity.

  • Consuming acidic foods and beverages: Acidic foods and drinks can wear down the tooth enamel which may lead to tooth sensitivity.
  • Teeth grinding and clenching: Teeth grinding and clenching can wear down the tooth enamel. Patients who grind their teeth may experience symptoms like jaw pain, chipped or fractured teeth, and tooth sensitivity.
  • Cracked or damaged teeth: Bacteria can seep into the tooth and cause inflammation in the pulp. Patients may experience pain or tooth sensitivity.
  • Hard brushing: Brushing your teeth too hard may wear down the enamel.
  • Gum recession: Gum recession is typically a sign of periodontal disease. When the gums recede, it may lead to dentin exposure which may cause tooth sensitivity.
