Why does your tooth feel like that? It’s possible that you have tooth sensitivity. This happens when the dentin or underlying tooth layer becomes exposed due to receding gum tissue.
The gum tissue is what protects and shields the roots of the tooth. The roots, which are included in the hard enamel cover, have thousand of tiny tubules that connect to the pulp or the tooth’s nerve center.
Other causes of sensitive teeth are eating acidic foods, teeth grinding, excessive brushing or using of mouthwash, tooth crack, and plaque. The infographic above shows some natural remedies for resolving this dental issue.
