Teeth are one of the most important part of our body that do a lot for us. Without them, you won’t be able to eat a lot of things. Our teeth may look very tough and hard but they required a lot of care and attention. If not taken proper care, they turn into extremely sensitive and can cause severe pain. By sensitive I mean, if you take a bite of something sugary, very cold or hot and even something acidic, a sharp sensation occurs in them that can cause repulsive pain in your teeth and in the whole jaw.
To some extent, teeth are naturally sensitive because they also have a nerve inside them. And there is a hard enamel that protects that nerve, and that’s the reason our teeth are smooth from outside.
But sometimes, enamel layer get weak, worn and thread-bare, leaving the nerves unprotected that too leads to terrible pain and horrible feeling especially when you take a sip of very hot or cold beverage or take a bite of anything citrus.
