Tooth sensitivity refers to the feeling of pain and discomfort when consuming foods or beverages, which are cold, hot, sour or sweet. Some of the causes of tooth sensitivity include factors such as consumption of highly acidic foods, excessive clenching of the teeth, brushing aggressively and tooth erosion, which occurs because of conditions like gastro esophageal reflux disease. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene and regularly visit the dentist in order to prevent tooth sensitivity.
