Sensitive Teeth Solutions

With all this warm summer weather it is easy to find sweet and cold ways to cool down. Many people however, suffer from sensitivity to cold foods and beverages.

According to research, a staggering one out of every two people in the world suffer from what is known as “sensitive teeth.” In dental circles, the condition is referred to as “dentin hypersensitivity,” and its symptoms are triggered when the exposed areas of our teeth become subject to pressure, or come in contact with cold or hot food and beverages. For some, even a cool winter breeze when smiling can cause pain. Fortunately it can be treated in a number of ways, and it can also be avoided with good dental care.
