Sensitive teeth? 5 foolproof remedies!

Causes of teeth sensitivity:

  • When the food particles get stuck in your teeth and they don’t come out even by brushing the teeth.
  • Watch out! What mouth wash are you using? This can also be the cause of sensitive. When you use a mouthwash with a tons of chemicals, for too long (over 30 seconds) or too often (more than once a day in healthy gums) then it may be the cause of teeth sensitivity because some mouthwash contains acids.

What mouthwashes do not contain acids? Remember to use them at alternative times for your brushing!

  • Acidic food
  • Tooth whitening
  • Spicy food and cold food.
  • Hard brushing
  • Gum diseases
  • Recent dental procedures
  • The main cause which is not in control of people is grinding your teeth at night.

5 remedies

1. Garlic

I feel compelled to make this one the number 1 remedy. I love adding garlic to my dishes! Garlic is the natural spice to any food recipe but also is a well-known remedy for a range of health conditions.

Chewing on a piece of garlic briefly produces a compound called allicin, which kills bacteria that can lead to oral diseases.

The buildup of this bacteria around the teeth and gums can lead to tooth decay, which may worsen tooth sensitivity. Fighting these bacteria may slow down this process and lessen tooth sensitivity.

A garlic a day keeps the doctor away!

2. Desensitizing toothpaste

Desensitizing toothpaste contains compounds that help to shield nerve endings from irritants. The most active ingredient is potassium nitrate. a compound that blocks pain signals traveling from a nerve in your tooth to your brain.

After a few uses, your sensitivity will reduce. Dentists also recommend using a soft-bristle toothbrush and low-acid or fluoride mouthwash.

Sensodyne is a SLS free toothpaste..

3. Honey and Warm Water

Honey is an antibacterial agent that will accelerate oral healing. Rinse your mouth with warm water and honey to reduce pain resulting from sensitivity.

4. Turmeric

A study in 2014 found that a turmeric plant extract was as effective as ibuprofen in relieving pain from osteoarthritis.

5. GC tooth cream

GC Tooth Mousse: a foamy crème available in a range of flavors including Melon, Strawberry, Tutti-Frutti, Mint, and Vanilla.

Tooth Mousse contains casein (a major milk protein), as well as calcium and phosphate. Calcium and phosphate are the major minerals that teeth are made from.

Tooth Mousse is available in two product options: with or without fluoride. The general Tooth Mousse product does not contain fluoride, whereas Tooth Mousse Plus does contain fluoride.

Tooth Mousse is not toothpaste. It is made of milk products so swallowing the product is safe and it can be used throughout the day.
