Sensitive teeth, also known as dentin hypersensitivity, is thought to affect at least 1 in 8 people, and as it’s much more common in people aged 18-44 than older populations, it seems to be a problem that is on the rise. The main cause of this sensitivity is the stripping away of enamel caused by acid erosion and other types of erosion. Although staying away from acidic foods and regularly brushing your teeth can limit the rate at which teeth erode, many other lifestyle factors which are virtually impossible to avoid altogether contribute to damage to the enamel, and in turn, to tooth sensitivity. To truly combat sensitive teeth, a different approach is required.
How to stop sensitive teeth
The most effective way to combat tooth pain and enamel erosion long term is to establish a regular dental care routine with enamel boosting toothpastes and dental products. An enamel boosting toothpaste can be used twice a day or more as required, and a more intensive treatment can be used less frequently to provide additional care and protection.
