Knowing what to avoid if you have sensitive teeth (clinically known as dentine hypersensitivity) is one of the best ways to avoiding oral pain and discomfort.
Sensitive teeth are a common occurrence, affecting a large number of people at some point in their lives. The symptoms can come and go, but there are many things you can do to prevent or ease the pain and avoid further corrosion.
