This condition can affect anyone. However, the majority happens to people aged 20 to 30 years, especially women. They generally feel there is a mild shock to the teeth which causes extreme discomfort for a moment.

Dental aesthetics, Karishma Jaradi, said, “This problem can occur in one or more teeth triggered by hot, cold, sweet, or sour foods and beverages, or even cold air. Aching pain can be felt very sharp to the nerve endings of your teeth.” He said according to the Times of India.

Brushing your teeth too hard can also be a cause. If you experience symptoms of sensitive teeth,  going to the dentist is the best solution. However, there is a quick way as an alternative to cope with sensitive teeth.

Here are some solutions to help you cope with sensitive teeth:

1. Use a fluffy brush as it gives less pressure when brushing teeth

2. Use toothpaste recommended by dentists to help reduce tooth sensitivity gradually.

3. Refrain from using alcohol-based mouthwash which is freely available on the market because they tend to damage the teeth.

4. Avoid eating highly acidic foods, red meat, and spicy foods.

5. Use a fluoride toothpaste

6. Avoid foods and beverages that triggers tooth sensitivity, like ice cream, drinking hot beverages, or ones too cold

7. Visit your dentist regularly.
