Objective: The current study aimed to outline the main factors contributing to dental sensitivity. Methods: The research used the cross-sectional-study design since it involves analysing information from a population at a particular time. The reports primary focus is on evaluating the risk factors of dental sensitivity in a population. The cross-sectional study design helped the researcher to get valuable information that can be analysed to theories and conduct detailed research using the data acquired. The study population is UK residents, who are the primary focus of the study. The researcher incorporated inclusion and exclusion criteria during this stage to determine the variables that are relevant in examining the subject under discussion.The study sample selected for this research is individuals from 18 to 40 years of age who currently suffer from tooth sensitivity. Results: Among 350 participants, there were 277 female (79.1%) and 73 male (20.9%). The most frequent age group was 46 years or more (n= 138, 39.4%). The duration of tooth sensitivity among study participants was less than one year among 150 participants (42.8%) while it was more than 5 years among 109 participants (31.1%). Most of participants brushed their teeth twice daily (n= 222, 63.4%). The most frequent one was normal toothpaste among 209 participants (59.7%) while 116 participants used toothpaste made for sensitive teeth. Participants underwent various dental procedures with most common procedure was fillings (n= 220, 62.9%). The most frequent tooth disease among study participants was periodontal disease (n= 111, 31.7%). Conclusion: In conclusion, this research presents multivariate analysis prevalence data on sensitive teeth and related characteristics in the general UK population. Despite the availability of a plethora of treatments, the incidence of sensitive teeth seems to be rather high among the UK community at large. New generations of professionals should be made aware of dentin hypersensitivity by the data gathered in this research and more broadly about dentin hypersensitivity, as it is a clinical manifestation that is growing more common and that they will have to consider to assist alleviate the suffering it causes.
