Teeth sensitivity is due to a substance called dentin, which is the layer beneath your tooth enamel and gums. This layer becomes more and more exposed as your enamel and gums wear away. The dentin is connected to the nerves of your tooth, so when it comes into contact with extremes in temperature or touch, it produces pangs of pain. The only way to find out the cause of your teeth sensitivity is to get an examination from an expert in family dentistry. The majority of cases are caused by these factors:

  1. Cavities and tooth decay
  2. Various stages of gum disease
  3. Exposed teeth roots caused by receded gums
  4. Erosion of tooth enamel erosion due to abrasive substances
