How To Manage Your Tooth Sensitivity

Desensitising toothpaste

Toothpaste for sensitive teeth have been developed for a reason and absolutely will help ease your sensitive symptoms! How? The key ingredient is potassium nitrate. This will help ease the nerves that send pain signals to your brain. Sounds crazy but toothpaste such as Sensodyne can be your best friend if you are someone who suffers from sensitive teeth!

Salt water rinse

Salt is a natural antiseptic and can reduce inflammation. Try a salt water gargle morning and night for most effective results.

Use a soft brush

Did you know hard and aggressive brushing can actually wear down your enamel leaving the dentin exposed? Make the switch to a soft brush and focus on not brushing too hard, for a thorough clean always floss rather than scrub with a toothbrush.


Mouthguard


Mouthguards are more of a preventive measure but if you are a grinder, each night you could be grinding away at your teeth, leaving more nerve exposed and enhancing sensitivity. It’s important to remember if your teeth are sensitive from grinding or worn down enamel that damage is permanent. Therefore preventative methods are your best solution. Your teeth are perhaps not as strong as what you might think. Make sure you take care of them.
