In case of Tooth Sensitivity, certain activities such as brushing, flossing, eating and drinking, can cause sharp, temporary pain in the teeth. Tooth Sensitivity is the result of worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots. Cold or hot foods and drinks, sugary sweets, even a cold wind against the teeth can make the teeth sensitive or throbbing.
