Avoid Teeth Sensitivity
Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
In summer time we all tend to experience more teeth sensitivity than during other months. Ice-cream, cold summer drinks and chilled fruit can all affect our teeth causing severe discomfort or mild twinge for a few hours. Teeth sensitivity is considered to be a common problem for people aged between 20 and 40. However, it can affect anyone whose dentine happened to be exposed to hot, cold, sweet or acidic foods or drinks.
Since nobody enjoys pain or sensitivity in their teeth it is vital to find out what are the causes in order to avoid them. The main causes of teeth sensitivity include gum disease or recession, dental erosion, teeth grinding or toothbrush abrasion. Sometimes a cracked tooth or a filling can also cause teeth sensitivity or pain.
If you are suffering from sensitive teeth we would recommend to brush them with Colgate Sensitive or Sensodyne brands. If you have teeth whitening retainers you could also put some toothpaste there and leave it on for an hours, overnight or until you feel better.
