The loss of enamel leads to sensitivity. In order to prevent it, it is necessary to use a proper toothpaste and toothbrush.

Everything seems fine at the dinner table, and then you take a sip of a hot or cold drink. Suddenly you get a sharp pain that shoots through your tooth.  If you’re wondering what hit you, your dentist has the final word, but there’s a good chance you’ve got something called “tooth sensitivity.”

The type of toothpaste and toothbrush we use, contributes a major degree to us having sensitive teeth that is why it is important to choose them well. We can choose toothpastes depending on the active ingredients they contain: e.g. fluoride, anti-bacterial ingredients, silica, etc.

It is also very important to choose the right toothbrush. The brush cannot be too hard as it can abrade the gum line and expose the dentine surface not protected by enamel.

The toothbrush should be changed every three months. Those who use too much force when brushing can choose an electric toothbrush. With this, it is much easier to control the pressure.
