LAVERA DENTAL CARE FOR SENSITIVE TEETH
Sensitive teeth are not uncommon: Many people are familiar with that sharp, uncomfortable pain that occurs after consuming certain foods or drinks. The reason for this is often improper or insufficient dental care, leading to deterioration of tooth enamel and irritation of the gums. Gums begin to recede, and the roots of the teeth are exposed; the narrow canals that traverse the inside of the teeth are no longer protected. External irritants such as cold, heat, sweetness and sourness hit the nerve of the tooth directly, causing sudden sharp pain.
Characteristics of sensitive teeth
- Pain caused by contact with certain foods or drinks
- Sensitivity to heat or cold
- Gum irritation
- Roots of teeth are exposed
It is essential to practise regular oral hygiene in order to prevent and to treat sensitive teeth. The correct brushing technique should be thorough, but gentle. Too much pressure when brushing can damage the gums, leading to irritation and actually triggering the vicious cycle of sensitive teeth. A soft toothbrush can effectively remove plaque without harming the gums or roots of the teeth. When choosing a toothpaste, make sure that it does not contain any aggressive cleansing particles or bleaching substances, as they can do additional damage to the enamel.
