6 Tips to Get Tough on Teeth Sensitivity

dca-blog_teeth-sensitivity

Have your teeth become so sensitive that the ache is tough to take? You no longer need to put up with the pain, just follow these six strategies to soothe your tooth sensitivity.

1. Brush Carefully

  • Some brushing habits can make teeth sensitivity worse, but most family dentistry experts suggest these brushing basics:
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Brush for two minutes.
  • Brush with a very gentle touch.
  • Avoid heavy scrubbing, which can expedite enamel erosion and teeth sensitivity.

2. Use a Toothpaste for Teeth Sensitivity
Today, store shelves are packed with products for teeth sensitivity, including many brands of desensitizing toothpaste. Since some are specialized for certain cases, ask an affordable to recommend the ones that are right for you and follow their brushing guidelines.

3. Try to Avoid Acidic Food and Beverages
Did you know that what you eat and drink could be eating away at your teeth? Highly acidic foods and drinks can cause your tooth enamel to rapidly wear away. The most damaging are citrus fruits, pickles, soda, red wine, and fruit juices. Since it’s hard to avoid them altogether, try limiting your intake and brushing your teeth about 20 minutes after eating them. Brushing any sooner can cause further enamel erosion.

4. See If Protective Coatings Are Right for You
Have protective resins applied to sensitive spots on teeth to shield your teeth from further damage. These resin coatings are brushed onto teeth and provide outstanding protection from greater enamel erosion. Just realize that these varnishes only last for a limited time before they need to be reapplied. Talk to an affordable dentist to see if these coatings can protect your smile.

5. Manage Teeth Grinding Problems
The crushing news about teeth grinding is that many people don’t realize they do it. This habit gradually wears down enamel and can do major dental damage. Some people grind their teeth while asleep and don’t even know that they have this habit until they have unexplained jaw pain and headaches. If grinding is becoming a daily grind, remind yourself to relax your jaw throughout the day, sleep in a different position, or get a mouth guard from an affordable dentist.

6. Get Receding Gums Treated
If you have receding gums, an expert in family dentistry may be able to repair the recession with a treatment called tissue grafts. This restorative treatment takes other tissue and applies it on sites of gum recession. This encourages new tissue growth where gums have been worn away.
