Do you have sensitive teeth? Does the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee sometimes cause you pain? Does flossing and brushing occasionally do the same? This may be caused by many reasons including tooth decay, a fractured tooth or even gum disease. It is important to see your dental professional for regular cleanings and examinations to determine if the cause of this pain is a serious condition. Don’t forget that proper oral hygiene is also key in preventing sensitive tooth pain. You should floss and brush at least twice a day!
