Tooth Sensitivity

Quick Ways to Help Reduce Tooth Sensitivity


Most the time at some point in our life, we experience tooth sensitivity.  Usually it is just blamed on what we drink or eat…there are other things such as tooth decay, teeth whitening, and so on that can lead your teeth to being sensitive. Here are some quick ways to help reduce the feeling of tooth sensitivity.

To help reduce sensitivity and still have white teeth, there are products out there you can buy to help with this. The type of toothbrush you use, or toothpaste can greatly reduce the pain felt with sensitive teeth.  You want to be sure you are using a soft bristled toothbrush, and that your toothpaste contains fluoride.  Also some toothpaste is made specifically for sensitive teeth.  These toothpastes work to fill the exposed channels (tubules) in the dentin. 

Your sensitivity maybe due to teeth whitening, you can still whiten your teeth.  The key will be finding a routine that is still effective, gentle.  You will want to look for products that specifically say enamel-safe… because it uses a less concentrated formula for more subtle whitening. 

Sensitivity can also be caused by injury from a broken or cracked tooth, or cavities, you need to see your dental professional right away for proper treatment.  Do not take any steps to try and whiten your teeth if you have cavities or damaged teeth until you get the approval of your dentist.
