(HealthDay News) -- If you wince while eating sweets or brushing your teeth, you may have sensitive teeth, says the American Dental Association.
Causes of sensitive teeth include:
- Tooth decay.
- A cracked tooth.
- Worn tooth enamel, fillings or tooth roots.
Regular dental checkups, desensitizing toothpaste and less aggressive tooth brushing can help people with sensitive teeth, says the ADA.
