Many people suffer from sensitive teeth, causing them pain when they eat hot foods, or have a cold drink. Sensitivity can be caused by many different factors, such as, brushing too hard, recession of the gums, cracked teeth, gum disease, grinding teeth, or plaque.
There are many things that you can do at home to help ease the pain of sensitivity: maintain good oral hygiene, by making sure to clean your entire mouth thoroughly. Use a soft bristled toothbrush, with desensitizing toothpaste. Watch what foods you eat, avoiding eating the foods that are high in acid. Use products, such as toothpaste and mouthwash that are high in fluoride, as this helps decrease hypersensitivity. If non of this makes the impact you are hoping for, make sure to call your dentist to review the different options to help alleviate the problem. Your teeth can be desensitized without drilling. Eat the foods you want without pain!
