Sensitive teeth can give you unexpected jolts of pain, sometimes just as you are eating your favourite food items. Here are some things you can do to reduce the pain caused by sensitive teeth.
Brush your teeth using gentler strokes to prevent further wearing of the enamel, which leads to more sensitivity.
Use toothpaste for sensitive teeth
There are some toothpaste products for sensitive teeth that work on blocking the tiny tubes on the dentin to reduce pain and sensitivity.
Address teeth grinding problems
Do you grind your teeth because of stress? Try using relaxation exercises to deal with the tension. Ask your dentist for orthodontic braces if crooked teeth issues are causing your teeth grinding.
Avoid acidic food and drinks
Highly-acidic food and beverages can further wear away the enamel of your teeth.
Have your gums checked
Gum recession may also be the culprit for your sensitive teeth. A gum graft treatment can address this problem.
