Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of hot coffee a painful experience for you? Does brushing or flossing make you wince occasionally?
If so, you may have sensitive teeth.
Once you’ve nailed down the cause, you can find a solution.
- Don’t brush too hard.
- Sometimes tooth sensitivity comes from brushing with too much force or using a hard-bristled toothbrush. Hence, use soft bristled toothbrush ,and work in circular motions with 45 degree angle to your gum.
- Avoid acidic foods, drinks.
-Soda, sticky candy, high sugar carbs attack the tooth enamel. Hence, snack on fiber-rich foods like fruits, nuts, vegetables, cheese, milk, plain yoghurt.
- Teeth grinding.
Habitual, purposeless clenching and grinding of the teeth, especially during sleep wears off enamel and causes tooth sensitivity. If the problem is severe, you need to see a dentist.
- Get a professional cleaning:
-Plaque and tartar accumulation can result in weakening of the teeth and gums leading to sensitivity. Hence, regular cleaning of your teeth helps in reducing tooth sensitivity.
- A cracked tooth or a filling.
If you have noticed your teeth during brushing and observed a cracked tooth or a filling, it’s time that you get it replaced in order to avoid other dental problems like sensitivity, food lodgement etc.
It’s also important not to shy away from dental care because of tooth pain. Ignoring your teeth can make things worse.
