When you visit your dentist, you may be in the habit of just sitting in the chair and letting him or her perform their work without much dialogue before or after the exam. This isn't always a good choice, because your dentist should be your partner in your overall oral health and not someone who just cleans your teeth and sends you on your way. You also may not realize that you're having problems with your oral health and may miss the opportunity to get good advice for how to avoid serious problems down the road.

Unfortunately, the enamel can become eroded, and this will lead to exposure of the sensitive dentin tooth layer.
