According to a new survey posted in the Journal of the American Dental Association, at least one out of eight adults has sensitive teeth.

University of Washington research assistant professor Dr. Joana Cunha-Cruz said sensitive teeth were common in young adults and those who have receding gums. Additionally, people who do tooth whitening at home may also have sensitive teeth. According to the researchers, it was found that people who have sensitive teeth may avoid some foods and this sensitivity can impact their lives. At least 37 general dental practitioners were included in the recent survey and 787 adults were surveyed.

Cunha-Cruz said that the survey’s findings can help dentists better treat this condition and be aware of how many people are affected.
