    I've had sensitive teeth for as long as I can remember.  I eat ice cream a certain way so that it does not hurt as much.  I am also careful when I drink really cold stuff too or go from cold to hot.  I think they are getting worse though because it hurt when I bit...

    Should Have Put It Off Again!!!

    I have sensitive teeth and "pathetically thin" dentine. So it seems like they almost physically disappear if I am not brushing them, rinsing them and being good by not eating sweets! Of course they arent but the number of hideous trips to the dentist I have had to the dentist for...

    I do have sensitive teeth, very sensitive! If food or drink is too cold, I have instant pain! And if it's too hot, PAIN! This is why I have to wait for my coffee to cool. And why I can never bite into ice-cream, unless I want to start crying! Coffee has to be warm for me to enjoy...

    I can feel the plaque that grows overnight and I have no choice but to brush my teeth.  I promise you, I have not missed a day of my life without brushing.  Another thing, I have to use straws because cold ice causes intense pain.  I can't take it.
