If you have sensitive teeth here’s a quick video with a few tips on how you can try to reduce or eliminate it.

In summary:

  1. Use a desensitizing toothpaste like pronamel, or better yet Carifree CTX4 5000! This toothpaste has RAVE reviews from our patients that have had ongoing issues with sensitivity that sensodyne or pronamel didn’t work for. Remember to brush last, spit out the toothpaste and don’t rinse so you get the most benefit.
  2. Sticky and/or sugary foods can increase sensitivity. Chocolate, chocolate bars, candies, sugary/acidic drinks etc…. sometimes people have new sensitivity because they suddenly had a diet “change”
  3. Wear a nightguard if you clench or grind your teeth, believe it or not this will reduce sensitivity during the day!
