Something as familiar as a cracked or fractured tooth can cause sensitive teeth. Tooth decay is another possibility as to why your teeth hurt at times. Tooth decay is another common factor because it eats away the enamel of your teeth, exposing the nerves or root of the teeth and could be causing you pain.

One of the ideal reasons for sensitive teeth includes brushing too hard. If you brush hard with tough bristles, then you could be scratching away your tooth enamel slowly each day. This can lead to aching sensitivity. Another common reason could be poor oral hygiene habits. If you do not brush and floss as you should, you are leaving your teeth exposed to bacteria and plaque that plague your oral health.
