Types of Dental Sensitivity
There a few types of dental sensitivity:
- Sour Sensitive
- Cold Sensitive
- Hot Sensitive
Sensitivity Is often caused by dentin exposure. Teeth become sensitive when the inner layer, known as dentin, is exposed. There are many different ways that dentin can become exposed, including decay and gum recession.
Am I at Risk of Sensitive Teeth?
The products you use and stress level can increase the chances of sensitivity. Using an abrasive toothpaste or other products that are hard on your enamel can increase your chances of developing dental sensitivity. Some studies have also found that individuals who are under stress or have obsessive-compulsive symptoms are more likely to have sensitive teeth.
