My tooth hurts everytime I brush my teeth. So I went to my dentist today, thinking I had a hole from eating too many dates. Turns out I don't have holes and that my teeth are looking better than ever! Yay!
The dentist told me that the reason some of my teeth are hurting, is because I have very sensitive teeth. With age (by the way, I'm only 19), it can happen, that your gums recede a bit and reveal parts of your teeth that were covered by your gums before. Those areas become very sensitive when eating sweets (I feel it when I eat dates), sour food and when brushing your teeth. He gave me a fluoride toothpaste and told me to use it 4x a week.
Does anyone have any other alternatives, or should I just throw away the fluoride paste and just ignore the pain?
And maybe someone has a little more information on sensitive teeth? Like, if it can also come from diet, too much brushing etc.?
