Sensitive teeth can dramatically impact our daily lives and the average dentist will deal with this issue on a regular basis. However, there are other causes which could be less associated with a dentist and more involved with lifestyle habits.
There is no reason that a smile should be painful. By recognising some behaviours to avoid, it may be possible to decrease tooth sensitivity over time.
– Avoid foods with a high acid content (like tomatoes or citrus), as these can eventually erode the enamel which protects a tooth.
– Tooth grinding is another habit to be corrected. This silent factor can dramatically impact levels of sensitivity.
– Many will be surprised to learn that using some mouthwashes too often could lead to teeth which are more sensitive. Some are more acidic than others.
