Tooth sensitivity is also known as “inverted tooth”,which is called dentine hypersensitivity in medicine.The recession of the gums causes the exposed dentin,and the irritation of heat,cold, sweet and sour is immediately transmitted to the dental nerve,causing toothache.

The brushing method misunderstands mechanical damage to the neck of the tooth,and then breaks,exposing the dentin,and suffering from irritation especially the sensitive symptoms that occur when the temperature difference between hot and cold changes.
When periodontitis progresses to the middle and late stages,the alveolar bone is absorbed, causing the gums to shrink and the root surface of the tooth is exposed.The root surface of the tooth that loses its protection is very prone to sensitive symptoms under the irritation of hot and cold temperatures.Several teeth or a full mouth feel The neck of the teeth is sore,and the teeth feel significantly weak when biting.
