If you sometimes feel sharp pain in your teeth, you may have sensitive teeth. It’s a problem for many people. You may have pain when you brush or floss. Your pain may be triggered by things like soda, hot drinks, citrus and acidic foods. Tooth sensitivity can keep you from having the foods and drinks you enjoy.
Your teeth are protected by a hard outer layer we call “enamel.” If you don’t practice good oral hygiene, this enamel can break down. Harmful bacteria gets through the weak enamel and begins to destroy your teeth. This is tooth decay.
