Sensitivity and your City of London Teeth

Sensitive teeth are literally a touchy subject: in the city of London, life can be stressful enough, so the last thing you need are teeth that are sensitive to everyday activities such as breathing in cool air, eating and drinking, it could just push you over the edge. If you suffer from this condition, you require an examination from your dentist and an x-ray to identify what’s wrong; you may also be quizzed about your oral habits, from eating to cleaning. It could be that you- grind and/or clench your teeth, suffer from tooth decay or maybe your gums are receding. Once the problem has been identified, then your dentist can treat you, by deep cleaning your teeth, or by a filling or root canal treatment. They can even put a varnish on or fit dental sealants to protect the surfaces of your teeth. However, the rest is down to you and maybe it’s time to review your oral hygiene from cleaning to eating and then improve it. Fluoride re-mineralises the enamel of the teeth and so you could increase the amount you take in through your toothpaste and mouth-washes. You neither need nor want sensitive teeth, but with a little hard work, you can solve the problem.
