6 Ways to Help Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive Teeth

Eating and drinking are supposed to be pleasurable, but hot drinks, cold treats, and sweet treats can be excruciating if you have sensitive teeth and gums. Some of the most common causes of the condition include damaged or bruised teeth, tooth decay, gum problems, teeth grinding, dental care procedures, overzealous brushing, and worn enamel. If you’re grieving the loss of your favorite iced beverages or candy bars, there may be hope. Sensitive teeth can be successfully treated at any stage.

In some cases, you’ll need to see a dentist for professional dental care treatment, but if your symptoms are due to minor causes, these six simple tips may resolve your discomfort.

1. Use toothpaste designed to treat sensitive teeth. Be patient; it may take a few weeks to work.

2. Try using a fluoride rinse. This is especially helpful for those with tooth decay.

3. Practice good dental care. Plaque buildup irritates sensitive nerves.

4. Switch to a soft toothbrush. Hard brushes damage tooth enamel.

5. Avoid chewing tobacco and snuff. They cause gum recession and tooth decay.

6. Avoid hard candies. Chew sugarless gum instead.

Know When It’s Time to See the Dentist

In some cases, your sensitive teeth and gums may require professional treatment, especially if home remedies aren’t working, or you notice a change in the color of your gums or obvious tooth decay. After your dentist corrects the underlying cause of your sensitivity, you’ll soon be able to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages without flinching.
