Oral hygiene: Make sure you are properly brushing and cleaning inter-dentally. If you are over or under doing it you could have sensitivity. Electric toothbrushes can be helpful for thorough and non-traumatic cleaning. If there is bleeding in your gums and it's been awhile since you've had a professional cleaning, it's time to get that done.
