Tooth sensitivity or dentin hypersensitivity is a problem for many people.   Dentin hypersensitivity is caused from the exposed dentin  of your tooth.  Symptoms arise  from something too hot, too cold, sour, etc. being placed in your mouth and touching the exposed dentin. The response to the exposed dentin is pain.  This pain can be intense and continue over a period of time and ultimately impact a persons daily life.
