How Should I Treat Sensitive Teeth?

After discovering you have tooth sensitivity, the next step is to find out what you can do about it. Talk to your dentist about the underlying causes, what you can do to relieve it and how to prevent it from getting worse. They can advise you on the most suitable oral care routine for sensitive teeth, the best toothbrushing technique for you, how often and when. You can also relieve the painful symptoms of tooth sensitivity by changing your regular toothpaste to a daily use toothpaste like Sensodyne® that's specially formulated to care for sensitive teeth.
