If teeth hurt when you take hot or cold drinks, you may have sensitive teeth. You will need to speak to your dentist about the twinges you experience even when cold air passes over the teeth.
– Take good care of tooth enamel which is the protective layer. Worn out enamel exposes nerve endings leading to pain.
– Brush softly with a soft bristled brush to avoid wearing out tooth enamel.
– Teeth sensitivity could be a sign of other problems such as receding gums, teeth grinding and gum disease.
Ignoring your teeth can make things worse. Brush and floss twice a day to help keep your smile bright and pain-free. And see your dentist for a checkup twice a year.
