Foods You Need to Avoid if You Have Sensitive Teeth

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?​

There are several options you can consider if you do have sensitive teeth. For instance, there are a number of foods and beverages you should consider avoiding, especially extremely hot and cold foods. Similarly, you may need to avoid acidic foods and drinks, as they may cause discomfort. You may also want to consider staying away from spicy and sugary foods.​

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.

Furthermore, if you use these types of toothpaste, you may be protecting your teeth from tooth decay.​
