A hot cup of coffee or a cold scoop of ice cream aren’t normally cause for concern. For those with sensitive teeth, however, very hot or very cold temperatures can be very painful.
When we experience pain in our teeth, we might blame the food we eat. It’s common to try to identify what food or drink could be causing pain and then eliminate that food or drink from our diets. But sensitive teeth aren’t as simple as that.
Eliminating potentially painful foods from a diet can minimise the harm sensitive teeth cause you, but it won’t solve the root problem. Sensitive teeth are more a symptom than an issue themselves and can be a warning sign that you need to take extra care of your teeth.
