Use a desensitizing toothpaste: there are several over-the-counter toothpastes that are specially formulated to help reduce tooth sensitivity. These toothpastes contain ingredients that can help to block the pain signals from the tooth’s nerve.
Avoid acidic foods and drinks: acidic foods and drinks can erode the tooth enamel, which can make the teeth more sensitive. Limiting the intake of these types of foods and drinks can help to reduce sensitivity.
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: a soft-bristled toothbrush can help to gently clean the teeth and gums without causing irritation or damage. Hard-bristled toothbrushes can cause the gums to recede, exposing the sensitive root surfaces of the teeth.
Avoid brushing too hard: brushing the teeth too hard or using a toothbrush with bristles that are too hard can cause damage to the tooth enamel and gums, leading to increased sensitivity. It is important to brush the teeth gently using a circular motion.
Use a mouthwash: using a mouthwash that contains fluoride can help to strengthen the tooth enamel and reduce sensitivity. It is important to follow the instructions on the mouthwash bottle and not to swallow the mouthwash.
Use fluoride gel: fluoride gel can be applied to the teeth using a small brush or a cotton swab. This can help to strengthen the tooth enamel and reduce sensitivity.
Consider using a desensitizing agent: there are several over-the-counter desensitizing agents that can be applied to the teeth to help reduce sensitivity. These products typically contain potassium nitrate, which can help to block the pain signals from the tooth’s nerve. It is important to follow the instructions on the product packaging and to talk to a dentist before using any desensitizing agent.
