How to Manage Sensitive Teeth?
Possible treatments for sensitive teeth include the use of fluoride gel and desensitizing pastes. Prevention is better than cure to ensure that you keep teeth strong and healthy.
– Take good care of tooth enamel which is the protective layer. Worn out enamel exposes nerve endings leading to pain.
– Brush softly with a soft bristled brush to avoid wearing out tooth enamel.
– Teeth sensitivity could be a sign of other problems such as receding gums, teeth grinding and gum disease.
Ignoring your teeth can make things worse. Brush and floss twice a day to help keep your smile bright and pain-free. And see your dentist for a checkup twice a year.
