    Tooth sensitivity is the pain you feel when you eat or drink hot or cold food and drinks.


    Sensitivity can happen when 

    • Gums pull away from the teeth
    • Gum tissue is lost, occurring as a result of brushing too hard or not brushing and flossing regularly
    • Tooth’s hard surface layer, called enamel gets worn away leading to exposed dentin

    When gum loss occurs, the part of the tooth below the gum line is exposed called as tooth root. There are tiny tunnels that contain fluid and lead from the tooth root to the tooth’s nerve center called as pulp. When hot or cold touches these tunnels, the tooth fluid can excite the nerve, causing pain in your tooth.

    Ways to prevent sensitivity:

    • Brush (soft toothbrush) and floss your teeth twice a day to prevent gum loss
    • Get professional cleaning done to avoid deposition of plaque and calculus
    • Professional check-up for your sensitivity can help to diagnose and resolve the root cause of the problem
