Do you ever try to avoid hot or cold drinks because you know how painful your teeth can be? It might be time to talk to our dentist about the sensitivity you are experiencing. There are other things that can exaggerate the sensitivity also such as cold air and coffee. Tooth sensitivity is very common and can come and go over time also.
Causes for tooth sensitivity
- Damaged enamel caused from brushing too hard
- Receding gums
- Damaged enamel from acidic foods and drinks
- Grinding and clenching your teeth (bruxism/teeth grinding)
- Periodontal disease
How to reduce tooth sensitivity
- Practice good oral hygiene by keeping your mouth as healthy as possible by brushing gently and flossing properly
- Maintain a healthy diet
- Use sensitive toothpaste (Sensodyne or Colgate pro relief)
- Use a super soft toothbrush
- Use Tooth Mousse
