Finding Relief for Sensitive Teeth

Tooth sensitivity is characterized as a short, sharp pain that occurs in response to stimuli—typically hot, cold, or sweet triggers—coming in contact with a tooth’s exposed dentin layer. While it’s a common condition, sensitive teeth can be easily managed every day by maintaining good oral care habits and treating the pain. 

GOOD ORAL CARE IS KEY

Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is important for preventing sensitive-tooth pain.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes in short, back-and-forth strokes. Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums.
  • Choose a soft-bristled toothbrush. They’re more gentle on the sensitive areas of your teeth.
  • Floss every day to help prevent conditions like receding gums, which can lead to sensitivity.
  • Visit your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup.
