Health Tip: Sensitive Teeth

(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.
