What causes sensitive teeth?

An excessive amount of Mouthwash

In case you are still sensitive, get some information from your dentist about neutral fluoride washes or those that lower sensitivity, and what ingredients to stay away from.

Eating Acidic Foods

Can't get enough tomatoes, citrus, organic fruit juices, and different treats that make your mouth water? Your teeth can. If you enjoy an excessive number of acid-rich foods and beverages you could dissolve the external covering of your teeth, called enamel, and uncover the delicate layer underneath, called dentin. If you do not want to give up your favorites try to cut the acid with a bit of cheese or a glass of milk subsequent to eating.

Late Dental Work

In case you're stressed over this before a procedure, or in the event that it continues after your visit, converse with your dental specialist.

Split Teeth
