Sensitive tooth is a widespread problem and can cause gnawing pain and discomfort. It occurs when the enamel is damaged due to rigorous brushing and rough handling. Other causes can be acidic food and drink, tooth-grinding, and overly vigorous tooth-brushing.
Natural remedies can be used for relieving the sensitivity; however, if the problem persists, ensure that your consult a dentist who might suggest a root canal treatment or cavity filling procedure for relief.
Symptoms of sensitive teeth include sharp pain on eating, drinking something cold, hot, sweet or sour; pain on contact with air, while breathing through the mouth.
