Dental sensitivity may also occur due to bad practices such as faulty teeth brushing, frequent consumption of food that is too hot, cold, spicy or sweet.
In addition to these, fractures on teeth, freshly applied dental fillings, and dental whitening and plaque removal may also cause dental sensitivity.
