Q.

Sensitive teeth

Hi there,

I have a tooth that is suddenly sensitive to heat. I feel pain there whenever I drink my tea. I started putting Sensigel on it, is there anything else I can do? Does it mean I need a filling?

Thank you.

when a tooth is heat sensitive it most likely will need a root canal treatment. Sensigel is a short term solution- if anything. see a dentist

Please help. My teeth are very sensitive. The dentist says it is the enamel that is too thin. I''ve had treatment and sensigel. but it''s about all my teeth. I can''t stand it anymore.
