Treating Sensitivity

The Role of Your Dentist

Only a dentist can confirm you have dentin hypersensitivity. If you're experiencing any dental problems, always see your dentist for advice. They can advise you on the right oral care routine for you, the best toothbrushing technique, and how often and when. If you think you're at risk of acid wear, ask your dentist about things like the best ways to have the many acidic foods and drinks in today's diet. You can also try a toothpaste like Pronamel that's specially formulated to help protect teeth against acid erosion with twice daily brushing. It is suitable for people with sensitive teeth, and it strengthens teeth while fighting cavities.
