What is tooth sensitivity and can the pain can go away? Here’s a brief outline of what causes tooth sensitivity to inform whether the sensitivity can go away on its own or not. The article outlines other factors that should be considered when there is tooth sensitivity and how to monitor the symptoms and when to get to a dentist in this case.
- You are more likely to feel the sensitivity when drinking or eating something cold, from cold air catching your teeth, and sometimes with hot foods or drinks.
- Consider using toothpaste specially designed for sensitive teeth. Use small, circular movements with a soft-to medium-bristled brush. Try to avoid brushing your teeth from side to side.
- Talk to your dental team about whether you should have a mouthguard made, to wear at night.
