Do you have sensitive teeth but assume you’ll have to deal with the issue? Are you tired of worrying about the foods you should or shouldn’t eat? Did you know that there are a few things you can do to actually prevent—and to address—sensitive teeth?

Sadly, sensitive teeth can be caused by fairly common problems such as gum disease and tooth disease. Naturally, these problems are serious on their own. However, did you know that addressing these problems could also help you fight off sensitive teeth?

Fortunately, you may be able to avoid gum disease and tooth decay by brushing. However, if you use abrasive toothpaste or a toothbrush with hard bristles, you could be leaving yourself more vulnerable to sensitive teeth. Similarly, if you brush too hard, you could face the same issue.

Another problem that could lead to sensitive teeth is teeth grinding. You might be able to stay away from this problem simply by choosing to do so—but many people grind their teeth in their sleep. Fortunately, our team could recommend a custom mouthguard to stay away from these problems.
