In India, 1 in 3 adults suffer from tooth sensitivity. It is a condition that can develop over time, typically as a result receding gums and enamel wear. Tooth sensitivity happens when the softer, inner part of the tooth called ‘dentine’ gets exposed. Dentine lies under the enamel and the gums. Once the dentine is exposed, external triggers (such as a cold or hot drink) can stimulate the nerves inside the tooth, causing the characteristic short, sharp sensation of tooth sensitivity.
