1 in 8 people may have sensitive teeth.
That is according to WebMD. There are many factors that can cause sensitivity such as acid from your stomach, grinding, clenching, and more. These factors cause the enamel on the tooth to wear down exposing the nerves of the tooth.
Fortunately, there are many different kinds of treatments. We recommend visiting with your dentist if you or a family member is experiencing sensitivity. Regular six month visits will aid in prevention and a healthy mouth!
There is a short video “Caring for sensitive teeth” from WebMD explain a little more on sensitive teeth and some different treatments.
