Many toothpaste brands claim to treat sensitivity but studies show otherwise. That’s why excessive and aggressive brushing erodes your enamel and causes sensitivity. Here’s more on toothpaste and enamel erosion.
– If left untreated, dental erosion will progress to the dentin, resulting in discolouration and sensitivity to foods.
– According to experts, avoid dental erosion by eating healthy foods and visiting the dentist for checkups.
– Consult your dentist on the best toothpaste for you and only brush your teeth twice a day.
Prevent sensitivity by avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol.
