Dealing With Sensitive Teeth

Posted .

What have you heard about dealing with sensitive pearly whites? Do you ever find yourself avoiding some of your favorite foods and drinks because you’re worried that your sensitivity might flair up? Sensitive teeth can be caused by several dental problems—and addressing these problems can help you reverse your sensitivity.

Sensitivity can also be caused by a number of issues including tooth decay, gum disease, and even using the wrong kind of toothbrush. You see, if you brush your teeth with too much force, or use a toothbrush with hard bristles, you might damage your teeth and your gums. You see, if your enamel becomes eroded, your dentin could become exposed. Sadly, this may also be the cause of your teeth’s sensitivity.

Would you be interested in learning that keeping your teeth and gums clean could help you prevent these problems? Naturally, this means you should try to brush your pearly whites twice a day for two minutes at a time. You should also remember to floss on a daily basis. You should also visit our team once every six months for a regular checkup.

You should be aware that there are several different foods to avoid if you are one who suffers from sensitive teeth. For instance, you should be careful with extreme temperatures, such as hot or cold foods. Sugary, spicy, or acidic foods could also aggravate your teeth.
