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.
