Recommendations to prevent hypersensitivity are to conduct a proper teeth brushing. This is important to follow the recommendations of your dentist. Doctors advise: “the main thing is to never make horizontal movements, we must brush in a circular manner and using a bristle brush which preferably are not hard and it is in good condition, i.e., to be renewed every three months”.
The guide to proper brushing is:
- Place the brush at an angle of 45 ° and gently brush in a circular motion (roughly 20 per tooth).
- Turn the brush to help remove plaque from the gum line toward the end of the tooth (scavenging effect).
- Repeat the process on all teeth to the gum lines are clean.
- In the incisors (central parts) and in dogs (canines), brushing the inner surface towards the end of the tooth.
- In premolars and molars, the molar surface brush back and forth.
- Finally, brush your tongue gently and firmly and rinse with water.
- You can also complete the dental hygiene with mouthwash.
Since a diet rich in foods with high acidity is partly causing hypersensitivity, carry out a healthy and balanced diet in which not abused, for example, fresh tomatoes, citrus fruits and carbonated beverages help reduce and improve the discomfort of tooth sensitivity.
