GETTING TO THE HEART OF TOOTH PAIN AND SENSITIVITY

YOUR TEETH HAVE FEELINGS TOO

Anyone who’s ever experienced tooth sensitivity understands how jarring and wince-worthy the pain can be. It’s estimated that half the population suffers from sensitive teeth. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, your love affair with certain foods might be over. Say goodbye to cupcakes, ice cream or a hot cup of coffee.

A REAL SOFTIE ON THE INSIDE

Your teeth might look tough, but sometimes they can’t take the heat. Beneath the hard enamel of your teeth are actually all sorts of sensitive parts, including soft tissue, blood and lymph vessels, and nerves. If enamel becomes thin, or an area beneath it gets exposed, a tooth can suddenly become more sensitive to heat, cold, acids and sweets.

TAKING SENSITIVE ACTION

Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to help manage sensitivity, and avoid breaking up with the foods you love.
