What are the causes of tooth sensitivity?
Have you ever felt a sudden chill or pain in your teeth? That’s tooth sensitivity. It can differ from person to person, but it affects a very large part of our society. So why does it happen? The list of reasons why our teeth are sensitive can be quite long, but most of them involve the loss of protective covering over the dentin - one of the four main components of teeth, along with cementum, enamel, and pulp.
Your diet can play a big part in tooth sensitivity. Eating acidic or hard foods can make your teeth more sensitive. Stress can also lead to tooth sensitivity, but not in the most direct way. If you are stressed and prone to grinding your teeth, you can make your teeth more sensitive.
