Do you often experience pain while brushing? Do your teeth hurt when exposed to heat or cold? Tooth sensitivity often occurs around the gumline and may be due to gum recession, which can expose the dentin, or inner structure of your tooth. Using a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth may help. Potassium is believed to calm the nerve endings and reduce discomfort.
