Solutions for Tooth Sensitivity
Are your teeth overly sensitive? A few simple adjustments could make all of the difference in the world in terms of a healthy and painfree smile.
– Tooth grinding can literally strip away valuable enamel.
– Brushing or flossing with too much force may cause teeth to become more sensitive.
– Don’t eat so many acidic foods (tomatoes and citrus) as they can affect tooth enamel.
– Some mouthwashes are very acidic and can impact enamel if used too often.
“Tooth enamel is the strongest material in your body, but it’s no match for the power of clenching or grinding.”
