Do Cold Drinks Make Your Teeth Hurt?
Teeth sensitivity is a common problem experienced by many people from time to time.

Teeth are covered by a layer of hard enamel that is tightly sealed by healthy gum tissue. The inner layer of the teeth is made of a softer layer with numerous microscopic nerve endings. If these nerve endings are exposed, or if the tooth becomes irritated, tooth sensitivity results.

Why are sensitive teeth a concern?
Usually, when a tooth is sensitive, it means that the tooth is mildly irritated. The sensation of sensitivity is the tooth’s way of letting us know that something is wrong.

When should I seek help?

Teeth sensitivity is a clinical symptom that may indicate more troublesome dental conditions. One should consider getting professional help if:
- The sensitivity gets worse with time (e.g. gets more painful after a few days)
- The problem lasts longer with time (e.g. instead of a few seconds of discomfort, it becomes a few minutes of discomfort)
- The gums bleed after eating, brushing, or rinsing
- There are rough edges on the teeth, which may indicate failing fillings or chipped teeth
- The sensitivity does not go away after using a good quality toothpaste with desensitizing formula
- You have not visited a dentist for a long time.

What can teeth be sensitive to?
This is dependent on the cause of the tooth sensitivity.
If the problem is a leaking filling or a dental cavity, people commonly experience sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks.
