Sensitive teeth can be caused by a variety of factors such as gum recession, tooth decay, or teeth grinding. If you have sensitive teeth, there are several things you can do to help reduce pain and discomfort. Here are some tips!

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush gently. Avoid brushing horizontally – brush “up and down”! We provide a number of treatments for receding gums.
  • Use toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth. After brushing, spit but don’t rinse – a thin film of toothpaste will reduce sensitivity.
  • Avoid acidic foods and drinks. Lemons and oranges can erode your toot enamel. Fizzy drinks (even zero sugar ones) can still affect your teeth.
  • Don’t grind your teeth. Many of our patients grind during sleep. We can construct custom night guards to protect your teeth.
  • Visit Elation Dental regularly for checkups and cleanings! Click here to make an online appointment to see Elation Dentists near me in Croydon South, Ringwood, Bayswater, Heathmont!
