If you get that ouch fac­tor when you eat or drink some­thing hot or cold, it can be a sign of tooth de­cay or root sur­face sen­si­tiv­ity, due to shrink­ing gums ex­pos­ing sen­si­tive parts of the tooth.

“This can be the re­sult of pe­ri­odon­tal dis­ease, overzeal­ous brush­ing, or you may be eat­ing acidic foods,” says Gar­raway. Your den­tist can sug­gest top­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions to re­duce sen­si­tiv­ity and you can also swap reg­u­lar tooth­paste for one de­signed for sen­si­tive teeth.
