Do you have sensitive teeth?


Sensitive teeth are hard to deal with plain and simple, everyone wants to enjoy a cold drink or some ice cream every now and then and so everyone should. In this article we will talk about sensitive teeth and the issues associated with it.

Signs of sensitive teeth
Sensitive teeth is an interesting issue because it can come and go at various periods in your life, sensitivity generally occurs when you consume very hot, cold or sweet foods and is characterised by a short, sharp pain or tingling in the teeth affected. However it is also known to occur at other times when consuming normal food and drinks and can occur at other times without notice.

How to treat it?
The first and best way to prevent sensitivity is to avoid the particular types of foods described above, but obviously this is not the ideal way to deal with the issue because we all want enjoy these things. One good way to help prevent sensitivity is to use a sensitive specific toothbrush and toothpaste. The toothpaste is designed to create a barrier that prevents sharp pain when teeth come into contact with sweet, cold or hot foods and drinks.

There is also mouthwash available that works in a similar way and should be used in conjunction with the toothpaste to give your teeth the best chance of keeping sensitivity issues away.

If you are finding it hard to manage your sensitivity problem then it is best to speak to your Solihull dentist or hygienist about ways that you can improve and manage the sensitivity of your teeth.
