What Can You Do About Sensitive Teeth?

If teeth hurt when you take hot or cold drinks, you may have sensitive teeth. You will need to speak to your dentist about the twinges you experience even when cold air passes over the teeth.

  • Take good care of tooth enamel which is the protective layer. Worn out enamel exposes nerve endings leading to pain.
  • Brush softly with a soft bristled brush to avoid wearing out tooth enamel.
