If you’re wondering how to help sensitive teeth, the key is to incorporate good habits into your daily oral health routine.

  • Don't brush too hard or too often Brushing too aggressively or more frequently than your dentist recommends can contribute to gum recession and wear your enamel. Over time, receding gums and enamel loss can lead to exposed dentine and tooth sensitivity.
  • Use a soft toothbrush A softer toothbrush can help to reduce the effects of aggressive brushing and help to protect your enamel. 
  • Use a sensitivity toothpaste. Sensitivity toothpastes, like those in the Sensodyne range, can provide daily relief as a treatment for sensitive teeth when used twice a day.

Talk to your dentist about the best oral hygiene and tooth brushing technique for you.
