What you can do if you have sensitive teeth?
Those that have sensitive teeth are almost always in pain because manifests itself through when eating or drinking very hot or very cold things. Usually, the pain is very sharp. Sensitive teeth occur when the underlying layer of teeth, called dentin, is exposed. Microscopic holes called tubules are found in the roots and lead to the pulp where all the nerves are.

There are many reasons why you may have sensitive teeth. Sensitive teeth can occur because the enamel has worn out due to brushing too hard, or eating too much acidic foods like citrus fruits, tea or tomatoes. Whatever the cause, in this article we present some ideas that can help you with the pain of sensitive teeth.

Use Special Toothpaste and a special toothbrush
There are several types of toothpastes on the market made especially for sensitive teeth. Usually, these work to desensitize your teeth, as well as help build up the lost enamel and cover up those tubules. Before you go to bed, apply a layer of toothpaste on the exposed roots of your teeth.

You’ll have to use a special toothbrush for sensitive teeth.

Take care of your diet
Certain foods can wear down the enamel in your teeth such as highly acidic foods. Starch and sugar left over in your mouth reacts with plaque, creating more acids. So, if you eat foods that contain these substances, you’ll have to brush your teeth after each meal. Also, be sure to watch your diet and eat nutritionally-rich foods for your overall and oral health.

Other Ways to Help Sensitive Teeth:
Depending on the cause of your sensitive teeth, there may be other ways to deal with it. If you grind your teeth when you sleep, go to your dentist to get a mouth guard. If you live in a place that doesn’t have fluoridated water, use special mouthwash and other products to compensate.

Maintaining good oral hygiene habits is the best way to prevent sensitive teeth and other dental problems. As a general rule, brush at least three times a day, floss regularly to maintain healthy teeth and gums and visit your dentist twice a year for regular check-ups.

Over-all, maintaining good oral hygiene habits is the best way to prevent sensitive teeth and other dental problems. Brush at least 3 times a day and floss regularly to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
