TIPS TO HELP WITH TEETH SENSITIZATION

Tooth sensitivity is a painful response that results from exposure of the inner layer (dentine) of a tooth. Exposure could be as a result of tooth crack, severe attrition, cervical abrasion, acidic food consumption, failed tooth restoration. Symptoms include a sharp pain that result from taking hot or cold drinks, air blowing into the mouth, contact with apposing tooth, intake of acidic food, gum recession,etc.
Use a toothpaste designed to reduce sensitivity.
Use FDA approved desensitizing toothpaste such as Crest Sensitive, Sensodyne Pronamel, Sensodyne Rapid Action and several others over the counter toothpastes. The effectiveness of these toothpastes depends on regular usage over an extended period of time. For very tender areas, try rubbing a bit of densitizing toothpaste directly on the tooth.

Use a soft tooth brush.
Overzealous brushing with hard tooth brush will only remove the protective layer (enamel) of the tooth especially along the gum line. Soft brushing and gentle up and down movement will remove the disease causing dental plaque without promoting sensitivity.

Make sure you are not grinding your teeth
Grinding (bruxism) creates premature and excessive wear on the teeth.

Avoid whitening toothpastes
Whitening toothpastes contain carbamide peroxide and frequently very abrasive compounds that wear away tooth structure. Carbamide peroxide becomes hydrogen peroxide in the mouth and promotes sensitivity. It should be avoided or at least done with professional supervision.

Avoid acidic foods
Energy drinks, sodas and other highly acidic foods and beverages chemically erode tooth structure there by promoting sensitivity. Also, Brushing too soon after consuming acidic foods can increase the amount of tooth wear!
