Tooth sensitivity occurs when the enamel becomes thinner, exposing the underlying surface (dentin), reducing the protection provided to the teeth and their roots.
Sensitive teeth can be caused by the following issues:
- Worn tooth enamel
- Tooth decay
- Exposed tooth root
- Fractured teeth
- Gum recession
- Gum disease
- Worn fillings
Fortunately, for many cases, toothpaste intended for sensitive teeth can help alleviate any discomfort. The Dr. Brite toothpaste and mouthwash are made with all-natural, organic ingredients that gently, yet effectively clean teeth and freshen breath.
Tooth sensitivity can make eating, drinking, swallowing and/or talking very difficult. Here are some other ways you can reduce tooth sensitivity to ensure a happy and healthy mouth.
How to Reduce Tooth Sensitivity:
- Brush properly twice a day for two minutes each time
- Floss at least once a day to help get rid of plaque
- Eat and drink a low acid diet to reduce sensitivity
- Wear a mouthguard at night to prevent grinding your teeth
- Visit the dentist regularly for professional cleanings
