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.

  • 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
