Caring For Your Sensitive Teeth

**What is sensitivity and how could it be affecting you?**
Sensitive teeth develop when the inner layer of your teeth.
(called dentine) becomes exposed and is no longer protected by the hard enamel or gums. This means that triggers such as cold and hot drinks can activate nerves, deep inside the tooth.
Dentine can become exposed for a number of reasons. One of the main causes is gum recession which can occur as a result of brushing too hard or gum problems.
**Caring for your sensitive teeth**
Sensitive teeth need special care. Your dentist or hygienist will be able to explain the cause of your sensitivity and how best to care for your sensitive teeth. Choose a toothpaste specially designed for sensitive teeth with fluoride protection such as Sensodyne.
