About Sensitive Teeth
Human molar tooth  model
There are several causes of tooth sensitivity: cavities, fractured or cracked teeth, worn tooth enamel, exposed tooth roots. If you have regular checkups, these issues are likely to be detected early.

Naturally occurring enamel protects the teeth and cementum protects the roots. The underlying dentin is a less dense system of microscopic tubes and canals. If the enamel or cementum is reduced, heat and cold more easily stimulate the nerves and can cause sensitivity.

If you are suffering from sensitivity, the first step is to review proper brushing technique and try a desensitizing toothpaste. If it continues, make an appointment to come in for an assessment.
