If cold sensitivity causes you discomfort, you may be less motivated to follow a regular oral care routine of twice-daily toothbrushing and daily flossing. Poor oral health can lead to cavities and gingivitis, which in turn can promote more cold sensitivity. (1)
Break the Cold Sensitivity Cycle
To improve cold sensitivity of your teeth, consider some of the factors that can cause it. Use of teeth whitening products, poor oral hygiene, and nighttime tooth grinding that can wear away tooth enamel, are all factors that could leave your teeth more vulnerable to cold sensitivity. You can try to avoid very cold and highly acidic foods, and you can choose quality dental care products to protect sensitive teeth and help make your entire oral care routine easier and more effective.
Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield toothpaste is designed to reduce the cold sensitivity in teeth by occluding or covering up exposed dentinal tubules thereby preventing a cold stimulus from causing the fluid in the tubules to flow. All Crest Pro-Health toothpastes are triclosan free.
