What can you do about sensitive teeth?


Sensitive teeth can result from various problems with your dental health, making it difficult to enjoy your favorite foods or drinks like ice cream or coffee. But do not worry – you can take steps to reduce the sensitivity of your teeth and enjoy your favorite foods again. At EgoDent, we analyze the condition of your teeth and find the best solution to restore your dental health.

Here are some essential tips to help you fight tooth sensitivity:

Use special toothpaste for sensitive teeth 

There are many brands of toothpaste for sharp teeth. This toothpaste contains ingredients that help block sensitivity by either desensitizing the nerves or blocking the tubes in the dentin that help protect the teeth. Be sure to choose high-quality toothpaste and brush your teeth twice a day.

Avoid acidic foods and drinks

Avoid acidic foods and beverages such as citrus fruits, vinegar, pickles, coffee, carbonated drinks, and tomatoes if you have sensitive teeth. Acidic foods can soften tooth enamel and cause sensitivity. If you consume these foods or beverages, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.

Use a toothbrush with soft bristles 

Brushing your teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush can help reduce sensitivity. Rough hairs can cause gum recession and further stress sensitive tooth roots. Use gentle circular movements and avoid brushing too hard.

Floss regularly

Flossing removes plaque and debris between your teeth, which can cause sensitivity. Be gentle when flossing, and use waxed floss or floss that is suitable for sensitive teeth to avoid further irritation.

See your dentist

If your sensitivity is severe, we recommend you see your dentist. Your dentist may recommend fluoride treatment to rebuild enamel and reduce sensitivity. They may also suggest a dental restoration, such as a filling or crown, to protect and cover the sensitive area. If you are looking for a dental specialist to help you with tooth sensitivity, you will find the correct answer to your problem at EgoDent!

Sensitive teeth can be uncomfortable, but you don’t have to endure the pain and agony. By following the tips above and seeing your dentist regularly, you can reduce sensitivity and get back to enjoying your favorite foods and drinks. At EgoDent in Stanmore, you’ll find a wide range of medical services, on-site specialists, and a friendly environment.
