Why Do My Teeth Hurt?
If a bite of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee triggers a sudden, short, sharp pain, it could be a sign that you have sensitive teeth.
Tooth sensitivity is common and can develop over time, typically because of gum recession or enamel wear.
How do you treat sensitive teeth?
Maintaining good oral care habits makes it easy to manage sensitive teeth. Once you experience sensitivity, it can get worse, but brushing twice a day, every day, with Sensodyne is an easy way to alleviate symptoms, providing effective sensitivity protection.
