Whenever you eat something cool or hot and it makes your teeth hurt, the condition is called a sensitivity of teeth’ Teeth sensitivity is a very unbearable state sometimes for some people as it prevents them from eating everything. This might result to a person because of lack of dental care, weakness of the tooth enamel and because of several other such causes related with oral or dental health. If you are also facing this sensitivity of teeth, it’s the high time you follow the following remedies to cure it in a better way:-
1. Don’t Take Your Tooth Enamel lightly:-
Thought tooth enamel is the hardest protective layer of the human tooth but still it can become weak with a prolonged eating of sugar and sugar rich substitutes. A continuous depletion of this layer can expose your nerve endings and when these endings get exposed, everything you eat will cause sensitivity to your teeth.
2. Avoid Extra Sugary Foods:-
Avoid food items like soda and acidic products or drinks. Avoid foods rich in the content of sugar. Instead of these items, you can start eating fiber rich products or honey, cheese milk and other such products. The food you consume should not be extra cool or hot. It helps you get relieved against the sensation that such products leave with your teeth.
3. Avoid Brushing Your Teeth badly:-
Brushing your teeth in an improper or hard/harsh manner can also spoil your oral health. You should scrub up your teeth slowly and steadily with your brush moving its bristles in every direction. Use a tooth brush with soft bristles for better results. Use an Ayurvedic herbal paste for your teeth. If your teeth have become extra sensitive, shift to sensodyne or any other such tooth paste meant for sensitive teeth.
4. Use Baking Soda to Fight Plaque Formation:-
Mix some baking soda in mustard oil to make thin paste and then use this paste with your finger against your teeth. You can also use a brush with soft bristles to do so. Add one teaspoon of baking soda in half glass of water and fill your mouth with it. Now keep it in your mouth for some time and then split it. This will reduce the formation of plaque on your teeth. Guava or spinach leaves when boiled in water can also be used as an herbal Ayurvedic mouth wash against sensitivity.

Mix some pepper with a teaspoon of salt and then add some water or oil drop by drop to make paste with it. Now use this mixture on the teeth/s which has become a victim of tooth sensitivity. Repeat the same process everyday to get relieved permanently.
