There are some conditions that can be a right pain in the mouth in the city of Leeds and one of them is if you suffer from sensitive teeth and it’s generally down to the exposure of the softer tissue of the teeth. This can be down to many things: over excitable brushing can wear away at the enamel and when exposed to hot and cold temperatures, you will get short, sharp shooting pains; as it is if you suffering from receding gums caused by gum disease. Teeth grinding is very destructive to the surfaces and will wear away the enamel if it isn’t dealt with. Tooth decay can also leave the teeth feeling sensitive whenever they are touched by anything; cracked or chipped teeth will also leave the teeth sore, and they can feel fragile after they have been worked on by your dentist. The first thing to do is to get your teeth looked at to identify the problem; the dentist can then get to work on them accordingly. Having fluoride treatments and using a fluoride mouthwash will help to re-mineralise the enamel and make it stronger. Switching to sensitive toothpaste and to a softer brush will help tremendously and you should see results after just a few days if the cause of the sensitivity isn’t serious. Lay off sugar based foods and drinks as they will rot the teeth quickly. But be aware that this type of problem is a cautionary tale and you need to care for your teeth better in the future otherwise you might find yourself in serious trouble.
