8 Ways to Relieve Tooth Sensitivity

Updated: Dec 18, 2018

Tooth sensitivity may develop due to sugary drinks and improper tooth brushing. One in every eight people suffers from tooth sensitivity.

Key takeaways:

Brush your teeth gently using a soft-bristled toothbrush twice every day. You should use short strikes following the up and down movement.

Rinse your mouth with fluoride mouthwash after brushing to protect teeth from cavities and tooth decay.

Stay away from highly acidic foods and drinks such as citrus fruits and citrus fruit-based juices that cause enamel erosion, leading to sensitive teeth and tooth decay.

If you have severely sensitive teeth, you might want to consider an in-office dental treatment. Gel fluoride treatments (available in higher concentrations than you’d find in over-the-counter products), crowns, inlays, or bonding can all help cover sensitive areas on your teeth, the ADA says.
