Did you know, one of the leading causes of sensitive teeth comes from brushing your teeth too hard. Your tooth enamel is strong and shields the nerves in your teeth. Brushing too hard wears the enamel down and can expose nerves that can cause intense pain. As a result, try not to brush too hard and loosen the force of your toothbrush and use one with soft bristles.
Another way to overcome sensitive teeth is to switch to a desensitizing option. This can help treat your nerves after many uses. For more immediate relief from a dental professional, there are procedures you can do such as dental crowns or dental bonding procedures to help reduce the sensitivity of your teeth. Keeping a healthy diet of foods, brushing, flossing, and dental checkups are still always the best way to improve your oral health despite any problem you may have.
As you can see, there are ways to help your sensitive teeth. No matter the cause, our team is happy to help you in any way we can. If you have questions or would like an appointment, please call 208-324-8861 today. We stand by to take your call.
