Sensitive Teeth and Scleroderma

Sensitive Tooth by Shelley EnszSensitive teeth is the term used to describe teeth that hurt when they are exposed to things like air, hot or cold food, or brushing and flossing. There are dozens of causes of sensitive teeth. Systemic sclerosis (scleroderma) patients are more likely to suffer from sensitive teeth due to the effects of untreated heartburn (acid reflux), dry mouth, and assorted dental problems that occur when scleroderma involves the mouth.
