Common Causes of Sensitive Teeth

Ouch! That hurts! Sensitive teeth are a terrible nuisance! You can't concentrate when you've got sensitive teeth because each breath brings with it a bunch of pain. Even touching your teeth with your tongue can be painful and I've found it's especially bad during a sudden climate change.
So what causes sensitive teeth? Basically, any sort of exposure of your dentin will cause discomfort or pain. Dentin is the soft layer of your teeth that sits under your enamel.
This can be caused by
>gum disease
>brushing too hard - use a softer brush
>Grinding your teeth - use mouth guard to protect your teeth
>Acidic mouthwashes will dissolve your enamel over time, as will regularly eating acidic foods.
>Dehydration (including from alcohol or caffeine drinks)
>Tooth whitening and many other dental procedures can leave your teeth feeling temporarily very sensitive. This will likely last 4-6 weeks maximum. Try using a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth during this period to ease the discomfort.
Go see your dentist for treatment. This will normally include a teeth cleaning as well as application of a fluoride gel which will strengthen your teeth.
