Do you have sensitivity of your teeth at the gumline?
This is often due to gum recession which exposes an area of the tooth or teeth which is not meant to be exposed to the mouth. This area is covered by a thin layer of tooth (cementum) which is easily worn away with tooth brushing. As a result the tooth will become sensitive to almost anything which touches it.
If this is happening in your mouth the first thing you should do is:
- Use a soft bristle toothbrush
- Do not “scrub” your teeth use a gentle circular motion
- A new product, Colgate Total, has been developed which was independently verified (not by the company which makes it) by the American Dental Association to be superior in relieving this sensitivity
- As always check with your Dentist because the tooth or teeth may need restoration
