The Top Suggestions to Beat Tooth Sensitivity

Updated: Dec 17, 2018

A white and bright smile can often hide the fact that sensitive teeth are an issue for countless individuals from all walks of life. Unfortunately, a visit to the local dentist may not be able to solve this problem without changing one's habits. Sensitivity arises from an erosion of tooth enamel and it therefore stands to reason that this cause should be addressed at its root. What do the experts have to say in regards to advice and solutions?

  • Brushing with too much force will increase sensitivity.

  • Common whitening products can also contribute to pain over time.

  • It is always best to visit a dentist to check for cavities and conditions such as gum disease.

"These are just a few of the items that can damage your enamel. You could also have a fractured tooth or gum recession, which can expose dentin and tooth roots."
