Tooth sensitivity occurs especially when you consume hot, cold, sweet food and beverages and requires special care. For people who have sensitive teeth, iced drinks, ice creams, desserts, acidic beverages can be a fearful nightmare.
How to prevent tooth sensitivity?
- Take care of your oral hygiene: Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes. Be sure to brush all your teeth and use dental floss to clean between teeth.
- Choosing a toothbrush: Many people think that brushing teeth with hard-bristled toothbrush provides better cleaning. Hard-bristled brush causes wear of tooth enamel and increases tooth sensitivity. Consult your dentist for proper toothbrush.
- Caution when brushing your teeth: Brushing your teeth aggressively also damage your teeth and gums. It is important to brush your teeth without damaging your teeth and gums.
- Toothpaste: Brush your teeth with a sensitivite toothpaste, which will provide relief from sensitivity.
- Importance of what you eat and drink: Avoid acidic foods and drinks such as cola, citrus, lemon and lemon juice.
- Balanced diet: One of the important reasons of sensitivity is the erosion of enamel layer. Balanced diet is important as well as proper oral care to avoid it. In particular, foods with low PH levels damage the enamel layer. Contrary to popular belief, you should not brush your teeth immediately after consuming such food. I recommend that you wait at least half an hour. You can rinse your mouth with milk, for example. Calcium and fluoride-rich foods strengthen the enamel layer. Foods such as fish and eggs, milk and milk products are very beneficial for your oral health.
