Tips For Caring For Sensitive Teeth 

If you have sensitive teeth, then the regular routine of brushing and caring for your teeth can seem extra difficult. Here are a few tips to make tooth care for sensitive teeth easier. 

Don’t Brush Your Teeth Too Hard 

Don’t brush too hard! That can wear your enamel away quicker and make your teeth more sensitive. Try brushing your teeth while holding your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums. 

Use A Soft Or Extra Soft Bristled Toothbrush 

Pay attention to the type of toothbrush you choose. Soft bristles can make a big difference. Some retail stores may not carry extra-soft kinds of toothbrushes, but they can easily be found online. 

Choose The Right Toothpaste 

Some toothpastes can make the teeth-brushing experience easier for those with sensitive teeth, so find the right sensitive toothpaste for your needs! 

Avoid Acidic Drinks And Food 

Treats that are sugary sweet produce acid that is bad for your enamel. Avoid sodas, candy, and naturally acidic foods like citrus. Instead try plain yogurt, milk, cheese, or fiber-rich fruits and veggies. This helps you produce more saliva, which washes away acids and other harmful things.
