Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee sometimes a painful experience for you?
Does brushing or flossing make you wince occasionally?
If so, you may have sensitive teeth.
Possible causes include:
Tooth decay (cavities)
Worn tooth enamel
Exposed tooth root
Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity.
Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments.
