Sensitive Teeth Causes

This is a wide range of reasons why your teeth tingle when touched by cold. The most common sensitive teeth causes are dental health and habits. But the only way to find your cause is to have an examination by a dental care professional. Here are some of the most common causes of tooth sensitivity:

  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth

  • Gingivitis
  • Severe periodontal disease
  • Harsh brushing
  • Abrasive toothpastes
  • Acidic foods and drinks
  • Teeth grinding and clenching

  • Practice good dental care habits with regular brushing, flossing, and check-ups
