Ways to Prevent Tooth Sensitivity

February 25, 2019

Do you have sensitive teeth or have you experienced tooth sensitivity from a hot or cold beverage. Did you know there are ways to help prevent this? At Toronto Beach Dental we are here to share a few tips to keep you smiling, pain free!

Start with daily brushing! When you brush your teeth properly twice a day for at least two minutes, you can reduce the chances of tooth sensitivity. Try using a sensitivity toothpaste when brushing, which usually has lower levels of abrasives.

Don’t forget to floss. You may not realize it, but flossing once a day can help reduce tooth sensitivity. Flossing helps to get rid of plaque on the gum line and keeps your teeth healthy and strong!

Monitor your diet for acid and try to keep acidic foods and drinks to a minimum. The acid from foods can contribute to sensitive teeth.

These are some of the ways you can help to prevent tooth sensitivity. If you are having trouble with sensitive teeth, talk to us at Toronto Beach Dental today!
