3 Ways to Protect Your Sensitive Teeth

Sones Family Dental

57% of patients deal with sensitive teeth, so don't think you're alone in this. Combating sensitive teeth could be as easy as following these 3 simple steps. Follow along to see 3 different things you could try to reduce your sensitivity!

1. Strengthen your enemal

Your enamel is your tooth's first defense against plaque and decay. Try using a fluoride-rich toothpaste to help strengthen your enamel and combat sensitivity.  

2. Preventative care

Sensitive teeth could be a sign of tooth decay. Make sure you are keeping up with your regular dentist appointments so that hopefully, your problems can be detected and taken care of as soon as possible.

3. Skip whitening

 If you are someone who loves to whiten their teeth at home, you may need to tap the brakes here. At home whitening kits often contain chemicals that break down enamel and the nerves in your teeth. Try stirring clear of foods and beverages that will stain your teeth and try professional whitening services instead.
