Causes of Tooth Sensitivity
Tooth sensitivity is tooth pain that can occur occasionally or constantly. Patients describe it as everything from tingling to sharp pain. Often tooth sensitivity occurs when hot or cold foods or beverages come in contact with teeth, but taking in cold air can also bring tooth sensitivity.

Tooth sensitivity happens naturally with aging and is a result of the wearing down of enamel and dentin exposure. Common causes of tooth sensitivity include drinking lots of acidic beverages like sodas, sports drinks and energy drinks (these drinks cause enamel loss, and subsequently, sensitivity), receding gum lines, grinding teeth, broken teeth, chipped teeth, periodontal disease, and nerve damage.
