Do you have sensitive teeth, pain, or tingling when you eat hot or cold foods? Do you experience pain or tingling when you use teeth whitening products? Some people have sensitive teeth while others have teeth sensitive to whitening.(1) If you have either kind of teeth sensitivity, learn how to reduce pain in your teeth.
Simple Ways to Reduce Teeth Sensitivity
To reduce teeth sensitivity and promote white teeth, you can use the Oral-B Cross Action Extra Soft toothbrush with an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste like Crest Pro Health. Brushing lightly allows the bristles to move freely and do their job gently but effectively. Crest Pro Health contains ingredients that diminish sensitivity by filling the exposed channels, or tubules, in the dentin.
If you have teeth sensitive to whitening, you can still whiten your teeth! You just need a gentler routine. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Gentle Routine provides effective whitening for teeth sensitive to whitening. They use the same enamel-safe ingredient that dentists use in a less concentrated formula for a more subtle whitening. It only takes five minutes once a day to get the brighter smile you want.
If you have teeth sensitivity caused by injury (broken, cracked) or decay (cavities), see your dental professional for proper treatment of your condition before whitening your teeth.(1)
