If you have sensitive teeth, you probably know that eating can actually be discouraging. You may feel like you’re just guessing which foods and drinks will hurt your teeth. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can consider doing to avoid the discomfort caused by sensitive teeth.

As you may have guessed, one important thing to do is discover the cause of your pain. You see, many issues can cause sensitive teeth, such as tooth decay, exposed root, overly aggressive brushing, and even worn down enamel. Our team can help you address these issues, though it may be difficult to avoid soft enamel. Also, please note that certain foods and drinks like coffee, citrus fruits, and even yogurt can even aggravate your sensitivity.

Using a new toothbrush could also help you avoid sensitive teeth. Toothbrushes with hard bristles or abrasive toothpaste can actually aggravate your teeth and cause your sensitivity. You can also avoid this issue by brushing softly in small circular motions.

Grinding your teeth could also lead to sensitive teeth. This is a fairly serious issue because you could grind your teeth without recognizing it. Our team can also help you avoid this issue, potentially with a custom mouthguard.
