Discuss Your Sensitive Teeth With Your Dentist

Teeth are protected by a layer of enamel, but when this layer starts to erode it can lead to sensitive teeth. Tooth sensitivity is a sign of an underlying oral health issue and you should consult with your dentist.

Key takeaways:

  • Sensitive teeth may be a sign of gum disease or tooth decay, and you should discuss any new sensitivity with your dentist.
  • If you have managed your tooth sensitivity but the sensitivity worsens, it could be a sign of an injury, infection or tooth decay.
  • If treatment methods like desensitizing toothpaste become ineffective, your oral health may have changed and you should consult with your dentist.

“When your tooth sensitivity is new, even if it seems minor, this is a good opportunity to discuss the issue with your dentist to see if there have been any changes to your oral health.”
