What You Can Do About Your Sensitive Teeth

Posted .

Instead of suffering from your sensitive teeth, why not finally treat the problem and go back to living a normal, everyday life?

Tooth sensitivity is a painful, inconvenient, and bothersome condition that is very common nowadays. It generally occurs when the gums pull back from your teeth, expose your roots, and allow easy access to the tooth nerves. Other things that cause tooth sensitivity include:

• Worn teeth
• Tooth decay
• Gum disease
• Teeth-whitening products
• Plaque buildup
• Teeth-grinding habits
• Age
• Acidic foods
• Dental work
• Long-term mouthwash use

Luckily, with the modern dental technology available in the world today, all of these problems are treatable. Some treatments include:
