Managing Tooth Sensitivity

Desensitising toothpaste

Toothpaste for sensitive teeth have been developed for a reason and absolutely will help ease your sensitive symptoms! How? The key ingredient is potassium nitrate. This will help ease the nerves that send pain signals to your brain. Sounds crazy but toothpaste such as Sensodyne can be your best friend if you are someone who suffers from sensitive teeth! 

Salt water rinse

Salt is a natural antiseptic and can reduce inflammation. Try a salt water gargle morning and night for most effective results. 

Use a soft brush

Did you know hard and aggressive brushing can actually wear down your enamel leaving the dentin exposed? Make the switch to a soft brush and focus on not brushing too hard, for a thorough clean always floss rather than scrub with a toothbrush.

Reduce Whitening Sessions

Try reducing the time of your whitening sessions. Instead of 90 minutes, settle for a 30-minute session - you'll still see results! Give yourself a day or two break in between each session. This will give your teeth some time to recover!
