What causes sensitive teeth?

Are you wincing when you smile? Sensitive teeth can be a complete pain (pun intended); luckily, there is a wide spectrum of solutions at your disposal.

Key takeaways:

– Common causes of dental sensitivity include overusing mouthwash, eating acidic foods/drinking fruit juices, using whitening toothpaste, brushing far too vigorously and grinding your jaw

– The good news is that these can be easily remedied by making small changes such chewing gum after drinking fruit juices, using a fluoridated mouthwash, a softer bristled toothbrush or a specially formulated sensitive toothpaste

– Sensitivity may also be due to recent dental work, receding gums, cracked teeth or tooth decay – and your dentist can advise on the best course of action to ensure your pearly whites are pain free in the future

Talk to your dentist to discover exactly what’s behind your sensitive teeth.”
