Brushing & Flossing
If your teeth are sensitive after brushing or flossing, it may be because you are applying too much pressure or doing it too often. Learning the right techniques - along with brushing twice a day, every day, with Sensodyne - can help.
Professional bleaching treatments may cause you to experience sensitive teeth after whitening, but this is only temporary. Some at-home whitening remedies can make tooth sensitivity worse.
Enamel is the hard, outermost surface of the tooth and is also what makes teeth white. Over time, if tooth enamel wears a way, the dentin becomes exposed, leading to sensitive teeth. It may be caused by teeth grinding or acidic erosion.
Healthy gums are essential for healthy teeth. If gums recede, dentin becomes exposed, making the tooth nerves vulnerable to triggers, causing sensitivity. Gum recession might be effect of gum disease or aging.
Tooth sensitivity is a condition that develops over time due to factors such as receding gums, over-vigorous tooth brushing, and tooth grinding. The good news is that whether your dentin hypersensitivity is chronic or just every now and then, Sensodyne toothpaste can help. In fact, Sensodyne toothpaste is #1 dentist recommended brand for tooth sensitivity.
Is your sensitivity a daily problem or perhaps just an occasional annoyance? If so, then chances are you have "dentin hypersensitivity," another name for sensitive teeth. It’s not uncommon – as many as 38% of adults regularly suffer from painful teeth due to sensitivity.
Sensodyne Advanced Whitening is a daily care toothpaste that contains fluoride to fight cavities and strengthen your teeth. The minty flavor leaves your mouth feeling clean and fresh.
Can overbrushing cause sensitive teeth?
Yes, brushing too hard or too frequently can contribute to gum recession and/or enamel wear, which, over time, can expose the soft, inner layer of your tooth, known as dentin, and can lead to sensitive teeth. The ADA recommends that you brush for 2 minutes twice a day with a soft-bristled or electric toothbrush. Using Sensodyne toothpaste twice a day, every day, can help.
What can I do to help my sensitive teeth?
Although once you have sensitive teeth it cannot be reversed, switching to a daily sensitivity toothpaste, like Sensodyne, can protect against the symptoms of sensitivity when used twice a day, every day.
