Sensitive teeth is a condition of the teeth where routine activities like brushing and flossing can cause pain in the teeth. Unpleasant sensations are also caused when hot or cold food is consumed. Wear and tear, decay of the gums, accumulation of plaque and gingivitis cause sensitive teeth. Following proper dental hygiene like brushing and flossing regularly and limiting consumption of acidic foods can help prevent this problem.
