The professional term for sensitive teeth is ”Dentin Hypersensitivity.” The outer enamel of the tooth is very hard, and strong, but the underlying dentin is soft, and when it is laid open it is susceptible to sensitivity.

Having sensitive teeth can be life-altering. Because of the temperature extremes of ice cold and steaming hot food and drink, choices may be limited.

Treatments can be done by Denver dentists, and product recommendations for home use made. The most popular ready to use remedy is toothpaste made specifically for the relief of pain due to sensitivity.
