If you sometimes experience discomfort when eating hot or cold foods, or feel cold air hitting your teeth, you may have a dental problem. Some people naturally have very thin enamel on their teeth. They have even worn away enamel due to improper brushing. This condition, often referred to as having sensitive teeth, can be treated so that you will be able to enjoy all of the foods you love and won’t have to worry about pain when you go outside on chilly days.
Preventing Sensitive Teeth
If you only experience minor discomfort due to thin enamel on your teeth, switching to a soft or medium toothbrush will help slow the erosion of your existing enamel. In addition, you may want to go easy on bleaching your teeth, since this can also cause the enamel on your teeth to grow thin. Lastly, avoiding acidic foods, such as tomatoes, carbonated sodas, and citrus products, will help to preserve your tooth enamel.
