Do you have a sharp shooting pain in your teeth when eating something hot or cold? You may have sensitive teeth.
Sensitive teeth is not something you have to live with.
The loss of tooth enamel (also known as dental erosion) can be a cause of teeth sensitivity. Enamel is the coating of a tooth, which protects the sensitive dentine underneath. If the enamel is worn away or eroded, this dentine is exposed which can lead to pain and sensitivity, which can be worsened with extreme temperatures.

- Eating disorders
We can create an individualised care plan to help protect your enamel and to effectively treat tooth sensitivity.
