How to Deal With Sensitive Teeth?

Updated: Dec 17, 2018


Tooth sensitivity can be prevented by avoiding acidic foods and high sugar carbohydrates. Do not brush teeth immediately after eating acidic foods.


Key takeaways:

  • 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.
