If you have pain in your teeth when drinking hot or cold drinks and eating hot or cold food, you may have sensitive teeth. If this sounds like you, using sensitive toothpaste for your teeth can help ease the pain from the sensitivity and give your teeth a break.
Do not forget that you can also contact us for any help you need for your teeth. Here is some information on how sensitive toothpaste can give your teeth a break.
It Relieves Discomfort
Just by brushing with the best sensitive toothpaste you can buy, within two weeks, your pain and discomfort caused by the sensitivity in your teeth will be gone.
Try brushing at least twice per day or up to three times per day, if you can, and you will notice a difference within just a couple of weeks of using this type of toothpaste.
Ingredients in Sensitive Toothpaste That Help: Enamel Strengthener
Sensitive toothpaste has enamel strengtheners in it. Some people, unfortunately, have thin tooth enamel. Because of how thin their enamel is, they may have a hard time eating hot and cold foods, sweet foods, and foods that are acidic.
If this is the case with you, call us, and we will recommend a good sensitive toothpaste for you to try and ease the pain and discomfort you have when eating and drinking these types of foods and drinks.
Sensitive toothpaste also has potassium nitrate in it while many other regular kinds of toothpaste do not.
Potassium nitrate helps block the path from the tooth's inner surface to the pulp which in turn not only helps protect the nerves in the tooth but will also provide relief from the discomfort that sensitivity causes.
When you find sensitive toothpaste with fluoride in it, this is the best sensitive toothpaste you will find. Fluoride will help more than everything else to ease the pain and discomfort of your sensitive teeth.
