    overall nutrition.
  • If you wince every time you consume a scoop of
    ice cream or brush your teeth hard, you may have
    sensitive teeth.

    important things you can do for your gums and
    teeth. Oral hygiene not only ensures that you
    have a white smile but also it will also protect
    your teeth from sensitivity by preserving enamel
    that offers protection against gum recession.
  • Choose a toothpaste that is best suited for your
    teeth. Your oral hygiene routine greatly
    influences the health of your teeth. Gently brush
    your teeth twice a day and use a soft bristled
    brush to reduce the wearing down of your enamel.
    Avoid harsh mouthwashes that provoke tooth

    any existing tooth sensitivity that you may have.
    In order to reduce direct contact between acidic
    beverages and your teeth, sip acidic juices and
    drinks with a straw.

C. Visit Your Dentist on a Regular Basis
  • Do not wait for your gums to become redder,
    puffier than usual or bleed when your brush the
    teeth. By the time these things happen it is
    probably too late. Your teeth area already too
  • Schedule a visit with your dentist during
    particular intervals in order to cure sensitivity
    if you are suffering with or to avoid letting
    sensitivity hit your teeth. Schedule regular
    professional dental cleaning to protect your
    teeth against gum recession, cavities and the
    development of plaque that causes tooth

  • Not all tooth sensitivity problems can be solved
    by using the above mentioned strategies. Some
    people may require dental interventions such as
    bondings, filling replacements, sealants or even
    a root canal.
  • There are also several varnishes and coatings
    that can be applied by the dentist to relieve
