Why do I feel short, sharp sensation in my teeth?
If a bite of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee triggers a short, sharp sensation, it could be a sign that you have sensitive teeth.
Tooth sensitivity is common and can develop over time, typically because of gum recession or enamel wear.
How do you protect sensitive teeth?
Maintaining good oral care habits makes it easy to manage sensitive teeth. Once you experience sensitivity, it can get worse. But brushing twice a day, every day, with Sensodyne is an easy way to reduce symptoms, providing ongoing sensitivity protection.
