What can I do to manage sensitive teeth?


Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services

With the many recent advancements in oral health technology, you might not have to accept sensitive teeth as a fact of life. There are a number of options for treatment of sensitive teeth:

  • Brush and floss your teeth twice a day to prevent gum disease.
  • Be sure to clean all parts of your mouth, including between teeth and along the gum line.
  • Brush gently and use a soft bristled electric toothbrush. This will help prevent overaggressive brushing and protect your enamel from being worn away.
  • Avoid acidic foods and drinks.
  • Use a toothpaste designed to help protect your teeth against sensitivity.
