It’s never fun to bite into one of your favorite foods only to experience a sudden burning or painful sensation. As you may know, if you’re experiencing this discomfort, you could have sensitive teeth. Do you know what could be causing your sensitivity, or if there are any foods you should consider staying away from?

There are a number of things you can do to help your sensitivity. For instance, we recommend avoiding hot colds, as well as foods that are extremely cold. You may also want to consider limiting the amount of acidic foods, tomatoes, soda, coffee, and alcohol you eat and drink. Finally, please note that spicy and sugary foods could also cause discomfort.

You may have sensitive teeth if you have gum disease or exposed roots. If you have gum disease, your roots may become exposed. In other words, addressing gum disease could help you overcome sensitive teeth. You can also consider using certain toothpaste such as low abrasion products, to keep your teeth healthy and strong.
