Tooth Sensitivity: Cause, Prevention and Treatment

Tooth Sensitivity: Cause, Prevention and Treatment:

At Meraki Dental Studio we see many patients who ask us about sensitive teeth. Don’t let this common ailment stop you from eating and enjoying the foods you love. Tooth sensitivity is the pain that you may feel on one or many teeth. We mostly refer to the pain that is stimulated by eating hot or cold foods, drinking hot or cold drinks, consuming sweets, or even by breathing cold air from the mouth. When speaking of tooth sensitivity, we do not refer to the intense pain that might feel in the mouth due to caries, fractures or infections.
