Have you ever had that uncomfortable and often painful feeling when you bite into something cold? This is a sign that you have sensitive teeth, and it can make eating some of your favorite things a horrible experience.

When your teeth become sensitive to the cold, it’s a sign that you have a problem with your gums. Over the course of time, the gums will start to recede from brushing improperly or from periodontal disease. However, with the help of cosmetic dentistry, you can put a stop to that painful sensation.

A dentist can prescribe a special toothpaste and mouthwash composed of strontium chloride to help. This chemical can cover the exposed nerves in the gums to eliminate the sensitivity you feel.
