Do You Suffer From Painful Teeth Due to Tooth Sensitivity?

Do your teeth twinge when you eat or drink certain foods? Do you suffer from painful teeth due to tooth sensitivity? Is your sensitivity a daily problem or perhaps just an occasional annoyance? Chances are you have "dentine hypersensitivity," another name for sensitive teeth.

Sensitivity is a common dental problem. It's not a disease, but rather a condition that develops over time due to common factors such as receding gums, over vigerous tooth brushing and tooth grinding.

About 38% of adults regularly suffer from painful teeth due to sensitivity, some more frequently than others.
GroupShot Whether your dentine hypersensitivity is chronic and painful or just an infrequent tooth twinge, Sensodyne can help. This site can help you find answers to all your questions, as answered by our own network of dental care professionals.
