Causes of Dentin Hypersensitivity

  • Brushing too hard
  • Loss of enamel caused by eating too much acidic food
  • Tooth grinding
  • Gum disease
  • whitening/ bleaching
  • Cracked tooth/ root canal/ filling

Sensitive Teeth Prevention

  1. One way on how to reduce sensitivity is by brushing gently using a soft-bristled toothbrush.  Be sure to use fluoride toothpaste such as Sensodyne which is designed specifically for such instance.  Finally, brush your teeth in a circular manner rather than by side to side.
  2. Cut down your consumption of too much sugar foods as well as acidic foods as they can wear out the enamel of your tooth.
  3. Another effective home remedy is by putting some toothpaste on your finger, and spread it in the affected are at bed time.
  4. Visit your dentist and talk about the treatment regimen for your condition.  Moreover, tell your dentist if you are experiencing tooth grinding whenever you sleep.  Your dentist may advice you to wear a mouth guard at bedtime to protect your teeth and to aid on how to get rid of hyper sensitivity.  Also, you’re dentist should be able to tell you what treatment you can undergo on how to treat or cure your condition.

That’s how you can prevent it.  Hope this has helped!
