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.
- Avoid acidic foods. The acids in foods like citrus fruits, carbonated drinks, and yogurt can wear down your enamel, increasing your sensitivity
- 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
- 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!
