I would say for the past year I have had a very sensitive part of one of my teeth right at the gum line and the tooth. Where it is sensitive I can run my finger from the main part of my tooth up to the sensitive part and it seems to drop down. When it drops down it is very sensitive and almost makes me want to cringe. Recently another tooth has done the same. The tooth seems to drop down right before the gum line and then becomes very sensitive. My original tooth has started to get worse in the past month or two. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any recomondations on what I can do or what my options are. Thank you for your time in this matter. I hope to hear from you soon.

  • The sensitive area in your teeth near the gum margin is called cervical abrasion. It is due to either faulty brushing or in some cases it is seen when the person is suffering from acidity. To prevent this you should brush your teeth with soft tooth brush and that too gently. You have to clean the teeth not to scrub them. The teeth which already have the abrasion should be filled or they can get infected in the long run.
