Oral Health Tips – Sensitive Teeth

Many people have teeth that are sensitive to hot or cold foods. If you have sensitive teeth, you’re not alone! Here are a few things that you can do to help reduce your tooth sensitivity.

  1. Avoid acidic foods. The acids in foods like citrus fruits, carbonated drinks, and yogurt can wear down your enamel, increasing your sensitivity
  2. Wear a night guard. Usually while sleeping, grinding teeth can cause stress on your teeth and even cause cracks that make your teeth more sensitive. A night guard will protect your teeth from grinding
  3. Change your toothbrush. Yes, you CAN brush too hard. Swap your current toothbrush for one with softer bristles and treat your teeth gently. This can greatly help with sensitivity!
