Some toothpastes and teeth whiteners contain bleaching solutions that may cause teeth sensitivity. Speak with your dentist about some of the best products.Even better, get a professional teeth whitening in your dentist’s office.

Key takeaways:

  • Using too much mouthwash could be a problem leading to a sore mouth or worsening of already sensitive teeth.
  • Acidic foods such as citrus fruits and tomatoes as well as acidic drinks will cause erosion of tooth enamel.
  • Receding gums such as in periodontal disease may expose tooth pulp leading to sensitive teeth.

If you brush too hard or don’t use a soft brush, your gums can pull away from tooth roots. This can also wear away your enamel and expose dentin (yellow). Holes in the dentin are the tiny tubes (blue) that allow hot, cold, and sweet foods to affect tooth nerves. Ouch!
