WHAT IS TEETH SENSITIVITY?

1. Worn out enamel :
2. Cracked tooth or filling
3. Nerve damage in the tooth
4. Tooth erosion :
Sugary and acidic foodstuffs
Tooth decay or cavities
Eg: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
5. Shrinking gums
8. Recent dental works; scaling and polishing of teeth Crowns, whitening treatments, fillings etc
