It is known as dentin hypersensitivity or tooth sensitivity. The sensitivity can be either chronic or temporary. It can affect one tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth at the same time.

Triggering factors of unexpected teeth sensitivity

Treatments for teeth sensitivity
Use desensitizing toothpaste and fluoride mouthwash to reduce pain associated with sensitive teeth after several applications. Consult your dentist to determine which product is best for you. Exposed root surfaces can occasionally be treated by applying bonding resin to the sensitive root surfaces. Maintaining a proper oral hygiene regimen is always advisable. Wearing a mouth guard can help if you tend to grind or clench your teeth at night. In the worst-case scenario, if other treatments are ineffective and your sensitive teeth are causing severe pain, your dentist may recommend a root canal. And above all visit your dentist regularly for professional exams, cleanings, and fluoride treatments.
