Dental Sensitivity Causes Sharp, Temporary Pain in a Variety of Situations
Extreme Hot and Cold
If you experience sudden discomfort when you consume something very hot or cold, you may have sensitive teeth.
Acidic or Sweet Foods and Drinks
An exposed root, enamel erosion, or cavity can also make you more sensitive to things that are very sweet or acidic.
Breathing Cold Air
For some patients with sensitive teeth, even taking a deep breath during cold weather can cause significant pain.
