It’s never fun to bite into one of your favorite foods only to experience a sudden burning or painful sensation. As you may know, if you’re experiencing this discomfort, you could have sensitive teeth. Do you know what could be causing your sensitivity, or if there are any foods you should consider staying away from?

If you’re coping with sensitive teeth, there can be a number of things you may consider doing, and a few things you may want to avoid. For instance, we recommend limiting sugary and spicy foods and drinks, as they can cause extreme discomfort. Furthermore, we recommend avoiding drinks such as alcohol, soda, and coffee, as each of these beverages could make your sensitivity worse.

You see, you may experience sensitive teeth if you have gum disease or if your roots are exposed. Luckily, our team can help you address either of these issues. Similarly, if your sensitivity is not too extreme, certain low abrasion toothpastes may help you keep your smile strong. Furthermore, if you use these types of toothpaste, you may be protecting your teeth from tooth decay.

If you have sensitive teeth, please don’t hesitate to contact us by calling 843-884-1215. Our dentist, Dr. Haefner, and our team will examine your teeth and offer you personalized advice. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
