Have you ever had to deal with sensitive teeth? Have you met anyone who struggles with these issues? Would you be surprised to learn that there are actually a number of things you can do to deal with sensitive teeth? You see, because sensitive teeth might be caused by a number of serious issues, there are also several treatments options you could consider.

Still, you might be surprised to learn that common issues like gum disease and tooth decay can promote tooth sensitivity. Please don’t misunderstand: gum disease and tooth decay can cause other serious problems on their own and should be addressed as quickly as possible, but addressing these problems can also help you deal with sensitive teeth.

Still, did you know that there are other issues that you might be able to prevent from home? For instance, did you know that using a toothbrush that has hard bristles—or brushing too hard—could hurt your teeth and lead to sensitivity? You should also use circular motions when you brush your teeth.

Another problem that can lead to sensitivity is teeth grinding. Sometimes, you may be able to avoid this problem by making a conscious decision, but many people grind their teeth when they’re sleeping. Fortunately, with a mouthguard, we could help you avoid this issue.
