What Causes Sensitive Teeth?
Tooth sensitivity is when you feel a sharp, sudden pain after exposure to cold or hot liquids, sweets, and highly acidic substances. Sensitive teeth can be caused by a variety of factors, including lifestyle habits, harsh over-the-counter products, or as a side effect of common dental conditions. Sensitivity can also develop after minor restorative dental procedures, but the pain typically resolves within a few days.
