Caring For Sensitive Teeth-Things You Need To Know

posted on July 30th, 2015

Living with tooth sensitivity can be very difficult. A person with tooth sensitivity starts dreading hot and cold food items that he once used to enjoy. Sometimes, it becomes so unbearable that even breathing in cold air can cause a sharp pain in sensitive tooth. So, how to care for sensitive teeth and live a normal life? Here are some amazing tips, brought to you by Ridgetop Dental International Pvt Ltd-the leading centre for complete dental care including dental implants and invisible braces in Bangalore.

Select the right toothpaste

There are many causes behind tooth sensitivity. Some people may develop sensitivity due to whitening or tartar control toothpastes. For such people fluoridated desensitizing toothpaste is a good option. It is important to consult your dentist before buying a tooth paste.

Brush gently

There are specially designed toothpastes for sensitive teeth that you can use to brush your teeth, if you have sensitive teeth. Also, avoid brushing your teeth too hard. Check your toothbrush, if the bristles of your toothbrush are bent that means you are brushing too hard.

Choose the right kind of mouthwash

If you have sensitive teeth, acidic mouthwashes should be avoided at all costs. Visit a good dental clinic like Ridgetop Dental clinic in Bangalore to find the right oral hygiene product for your sensitive teeth. Your trusted dentist will recommend a neutral mouthwash for your sensitive teeth that will keep your mouth clean and remove bad breadth, without increasing your sensitivity further.

Avoid acidic drinks

Acidic drinks such as carbonated drinks, lemonade and juice can easily wear away protective enamel of your teeth, further increasing your teeth sensitivity. So, avoid acidic drinks at all costs.

These tips can help you deal with tooth sensitivity and lead a normal life. But if your tooth sensitivity lasts more than a few days, schedule an appointment with your dentist. Worn fillings, cracked teeth, receding gums and other causes can cause tooth sensitivity too, a good dentist like Ridgetop Dental International’s dentists in Bangalore will detect your problem in time, giving you healthy teeth.
