6 Tips on How to Deal with Sensitive Teeth plus *Giveaway*

We have been working in a partnership with Arm & Hammer. We were compensated to share this post with you as well as provided products to review. All opinions listed are those of our writer.

Ever since I was little, I have had sensitive teeth. It has made it extremely hard for me to eat ice cream, hot soup, or anything. Anytime I bite down, it causes me to wince in pain from the hot or cold that touch my teeth.

However, there are some things that I can do to help alleviate that pain. Here are my 6 tips on how to deal with sensitive teeth.

Sensitive Teeth

Flossing

Flossing regularly will remove trapped food particles that can cause dental cavities and unhealthy gums, and unhealthy gums can also result in overly sensitive teeth. Since I have had my braces on, I have made sure to floss regularly.

Toothpaste

Toothpaste with fluoride can aid in restoring and strengthening your damaged tooth enamel. Fluoride is best known for its action in protecting against dental cavities.

My favorite that has really helped cut down on the sensitivity is the Arm & Hammer Sensitive toothpaste. By using this daily, my teeth are no longer as sensitive as they once were.
ARM & HAMMER™ Sensitive toothpaste, from the makers of Orajel™, provides maximum pain relief in a low abrasion formula that is gentler on enamel. Plus, at a fraction of the cost of a leading sensitive toothpaste brand, ARM & HAMMER™ Sensitive Toothpaste is the secret to eating without fear.

Cut Down on Sour Food

This one is a hard one for me because I love lemons. The acid in certain food such as lemons and most citrus foods can destroy the protective covering of the teeth and suddenly you have hypersensitive teeth.  I guess that explains how I developed sensitive teeth? I am such a lemon eater!

Use a Soft Bristle and Battery Powered Toothbrush

My favorite is the Arm & Hammer Sonic Spinbrush.

The Spinbrush features dynamic bristles that move up to 16,000 micro-sweeps per minute. Far superior to the traditional toothbrush, this one-count Pro Clean Sonic Toothbrush features an angled head, and it is able clean your teeth, gums and the hard-to-reach places inside your mouth. This brush is clinically proven to remove up to 95 percent of dental plaque. The Spinbrush’s shape and micro-sweep action gets in between teeth to ensure the best dental care possible. The Spinbrush Pro Clean Sonic Soft Toothbrush has a replaceable head that allows you to keep your toothbrush in good working condition.

Be careful of the mouthwash you use

Avoid any mouthwash containing ingredients that are harsh to the teeth. Mouthwash with harsh ingredients can corrode your tooth enamel.

Regular Dental Visits

Visit your dentist at the dental clinic if you suffer from teeth grinding. The enamel can wear away when you clench your teeth which usually happens when you’re asleep. Your dentist will recommend a dental tool like a mouth guard to address grinding.

    I would like to try the sensitive toothpaste, I have so much trouble trying to eat cold items, when I eat ice cream I warm it up in a bowl before I can eat it

  42. says

    I have sensitive teeth and that’s why I can’t eat my favorite ice cream even hot coffee. I tried many pastes but I didn’t get any positive result but when I get to know about the Crest Pro Health sensitive shield I found positive result that’s why now I can eat whatever I want. Thanks Crest and even I recommend to many people.
