It’s a sensitive subject for roughly 1 out of every 8 Americans. And there are probably many others who are aware of it, but just haven’t let their voices be heard yet.
What’s the touchy topic? Sensitive teeth. It’s an issue that affects many of us, particularly adults between the ages of 20 to 40. But tooth sensitivity can hit you at any age.
If you feel dental pain or discomfort from drinking something cold or hot, or when you floss or brush your teeth, you may suffer from having sensitive teeth, which may be temporary or it could be an on-going problem. It can also affect just one tooth, a few, or many teeth.
So, why are your teeth so sensitive? There are a number of culprits to blame. Some of these are related to your diet, your oral hygiene, or to another dental issue you may have.
