Natural Remedies for Tooth Sensitivity

A selection of toothpasteIs enjoying a hot or cold beverage a struggle for you due to tooth sensitivity? Well, it happens to most of us. But fear not! There are some down-to-earth remedies that can ease the discomfort without the need for intensive dental intervention.

Be Kind to Your Brushing Routine

The simplest things can make the most significant difference. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles, and be gentle when you brush. Scrubbing too hard could wear down the enamel, cranking up the sensitivity.

Desensitize with Special Toothpaste

Swap out your regular toothpaste for one labeled desensitizing. These special kinds of toothpaste utilize compounds that can help dull those nerve signals that are causing all the sensitivity. Use it consistently for the full effect.

Saltwater Serenity

A teaspoon of salt meets warm water, creating a concoction that can work wonders for your sensitive teeth. Swish it around for 30 seconds, and voila! It helps ease inflammation and provides a calming touch to those sensitive spots.

Clove Comfort

A smidge of clove oil carefully applied on a cotton ball can be gently pressed against the sensitive tooth. This special oil can give a brief respite from the sensitivity struggle. And to top it off, the spicy fragrance adds a touch of aromatic charm to your dental routine.

Watch the Acids

Avoid taking acidic food, as they could be the accelerators behind your dental condition. Ease up on the citrus fruits and sodas. If you do indulge, wash it down with a sip of water to neutralize the acidic effects.

Oil Pulling

Swish a tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil or sesame oil in your mouth, pulling the oil between your teeth, every morning for about 15 minutes. Although an ancient practice, it is said to lower bacteria levels, promoting oral health.

Ultimately, our dentist can help you fully recover from tooth sensitivity issues. Contact us to arrange an appointment for an evaluation and recommendations.
