Aggressive brushing causing tooth sensitivity

Brushing aggressive, drinks consumption and acidified foods are the key factors leading to the emergence of sensitivity to the teeth, experts say. A third of the 700 dentists surveyed by the Academy of General Dentistry in the UK  think that nutrition is the main factor that causes tooth sensitivity, followed by brushing techniques.
Tooth sensitivity occurs when a nerve is damaged and is in the form of pain in one or more teeth, often in contact with food or drinks hot or cold, cold air or during brushing. Specialized studies show that 38% of the population of Central and Eastern Europe suffer from tooth sensitivity.
Brushing and consumption of acidic substances can harm tooth enamel and gums. If enamel erosion or gum withdrawal, dentin remains uncovered.
The survey also conducted by the Academy of General Dentistry has found that an important role in the development of sensitivity have some types of toothpaste, mouthwash, teeth bleaching products, bulimia and acid reflux.
Attention to the technique of brushing! To prevent this sensitive teeth, brushing technique you use is important. For this reason, it is important to choose a medium brush with soft bristles. Like brushing technique, many experts recommend roll technique. It consists of circular motions with the brush placed at 45 degrees on the surface of teeth (not perpendicular). Brushing should be performed on all dental surfaces for at least three minutes.
Untreated, can lead to complications. In many cases this sensitivity is ignored. Untreated, besides the small inconveniences (to avoid certain foods and beverages) may promote the emergence of more serious diseases such as paradontita. For this reason regular visits to the doctor are very important for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of such problems, and to obtain some important tips for maintaining oral hygiene. According to statistics, most affected by the sensitivity of teeth are adults aged between 20 and 50 years.
How to treat? Improving dental sensitivity is achieved mostly by using a desensitizing toothpaste or special treatment in the dental office. Desensitizing toothpaste with potassium salts act by blocking pain. For their effect to be felt, it takes a longer period of use.
Academy of General Dentistry in the UK recommended to improve sensitivity:
* Use a desensitizing toothpaste;
* Change a harder toothbrush with another one with soft bristles;
* Follow medical advice and clean your teeth twice daily with brush and floss;
* Avoid acidic foods and drinks.
