Thousands of adults suffer from tooth sensitivity. Having sensitive teeth causes people to experience temporary pain when eating hot or cold substances. There are many factors that can cause tooth sensitivity, such as tiny fractures, worn enamel, damaged teeth, sinus pressure, or infected gums. Luckily there are several different ways one can reduce dental sensitivity, such as using a soft toothbrush, brushing with special toothpaste, and rinsing your mouth with saltwater. The best thing you can do is make an appointment with your dentist to get an accurate assessment and treatment plan.
