Sensitive teeth, could this have been preventable?

Sensitive teeth, could this have been preventable?

Probably not: Depends on the source. Very common after orthodontics (even decades before), deep fillings, gum disease and treatment for it. Only real prevention is to not get older or dentures. As you age, the nerve can 'recede' down the root and decrease sensitivity. Until then: 1. Abstinence. 2. Desens toothpaste. 3. See dentist for sealer, laser therapy, root canal treatment or extraction in that order.

Why does sugar make it painful for sensitive teeth?

Tooth sensitivity: Regardless of the cause, can result from the loss of the protective enamel on your teeth. Once the enamel is damaged, sugary foods, hot or cold beverages, or other acid irritants (eg lemon) have easier access to the nerve center of your teeth, which can cause sharp and shooting pain. See your dentist to fix this problem.
