Do you experience discomfort in your teeth, but you don’t know what causes the pain? Here are telltale signs that you are suffering from teeth sensitivity.

It hurts when you consume something hot or cold

Do you feel a sudden pain when you consume something cold (such as ice cream), or something hot (such as soup)? Sensitive teeth can cause these sudden jolts of discomfort.

Sweet or sour food items cause toothaches

If your toothache is triggered by eating something sweet or something sour/acidic, you may have sensitive teeth.

Brushing your teeth can be painful

Pressure from brushing the teeth can be uncomfortable for those who have teeth sensitivity.

You have receding gums

Receding gums cause the roots to be exposed, causing problems with sensitivity and discomfort.
