Discover the Reasons and Remedies for Tooth Sensitivity


Sensitive teeth are a common problem suffered by millions of people. But you can treat the troubling issue with the following expert dental care tips.

Getting the Skinny on Sensitive Teeth

It’s a good bet you suffer from sensitive teeth when you feel a sudden stinging sensation while eating or drinking something that is hot, cold, sweet, or sour. You may also feel a throbbing pain when breathing in cold air or even when brushing your teeth. If this is a problem you’ve experienced, you may wonder, why do my teeth hurt? To understand the problem, you should be aware that healthy teeth are protected by their enamel and by the gums. But when your enamel or gums start to erode, the tooth’s lower layer, called dentin, is exposed. The dentin is close to the nerve of the tooth, so extremes in temperature or pressure will stimulate the nerve and produce pain.

5 Reasons for Sensitive Teeth

Do you find yourself asking, “Why do my teeth hurt?” Since each person’s problem is personal, this can only be determined by seeing a dental care specialist. But the most prevalent reasons for sensitive teeth include:

  1. Harsh brushing that wears away the tooth enamel and gums
  2. Receding gums
  3. Cracked or broken teeth
  4. Teeth grinding or clenching
  5. Aging

3 Dental Care Tips for Tooth Sensitivity

Whether your sensitive teeth only bother you once in a while or every day, you don’t need to deal with discomfort forever. Since sensitivity can strike for a variety of reasons, the surest way to ease your pain is to see a dental care specialist and ask, “Why do my teeth hurt?” Severe pain may be a sign of a more serious dental condition, so it’s a good idea to see a dentist immediately to address your particular pain. In most cases, the discomfort is due to mild sensitivity and these at-home treatments can bring you some relief:

  1. Brush and floss gently, but thoroughly, with a soft-bristled brush.
  2. Use a desensitizing toothpaste and mouth rinse, as recommended by your dental care specialist.
  3. Have routine professional check-ups and cleanings regularly.
