Ongoing Care For Sensitive Teeth

The key to caring for sensitive teeth is to incorporate good habits into your daily oral health routine.

Follow these tips to care for your sensitive teeth.

  • Brush and floss regularlyGood oral hygiene can help prevent conditions that can lead to sensitivity, like receding gums.

  • Don't brush too hard or too oftenBrushing overly aggressively or more often than your dentist recommends can contribute to gum recession and wear your enamel. Over time, receding gums and enamel loss can lead to exposed dentin and tooth sensitivity.
  • Use a softer toothbrush A softer toothbrush can help protect your enamel and  reduce the effects of brushing too hard. 
  • Use sensitivity toothpaste Sensitivity toothpastes, like those in the Sensodyne® range, can provide daily relief from sensitivity pain when used twice daily.

Talk to your dentist about the best oral hygiene routine for you, the best tooth brushing technique, how frequently and how long.
