I have sensitive teeth
The most common dental sensitivities are cold, pressure and heat.
Cold sensitivity is most common. It could be as benign as sensitive tooth necks but could also be more serious if it persists.
Pressure sensitivity (when biting on hard food) could mean a cracked tooth, an abscess (infection) or could be something that will go away again. Teeth sometimes become pressure sensitive if you clench/grind in your sleep.
Heat sensitivity usually means the nerve in a tooth is infected. Contact the Practice for an appointment.
