Sensitivity in teeth is often associated with extreme, often painful reactions to hot, cold, sweet or acidic foods and beverages.
Tooth sensitivity can be a sign that decay has penetrated the enamel and is progressing into the inner layers of the tooth. Sensitivity may also be caused by exposure of root tissues due to recession of gums. In some cases, injury or impact may cause a tiny crack in a tooth, exposing the inner tissues and causing hypersensitivity.
To minimize sensitivity, use a soft bristled toothbrush, floss gently, and use pH balanced CloSYS Sulfate-Free Fluoride Toothpaste and Alcohol-Free Oral Health Rinse.
