30 Bananas a Day!

Hello, I am new to this Forum, I have been to this diet for almost 6 months, my teeth have been VERY sensitive when I drink cold water and acid fruits. Obviously my dentist has been blaming the fruits. I switched my toothbrush to a soft one, any other suggestions? Has anything like this ever happened to you? 

Thanks for the response!

did you use to have lots of chocolates/caffeine, coffee, milk or sweets earlier? if this problem still lingers, could be receding gums. Nonabrasive toothpaste could help. brush not more than twice a day for 2 minutes max. try a tab of multivitamin coupled with your diet.(B complex and C)

I have had teeth sensitivity a couple of times over the last year or so while 80/10/10. Every time I start to think something is wrong I just tell myself to give it a little more time and it has gone away after a period of weeks or more.  Not really sure of the time frame because it just occurs to me that one day me teeth feel great.  I have gone to the dentist for a cleaning while they were sensitive and he said there was nothing visible where I was having the sensitivity and he thinks my diet is great.  One thing that helps is that I firmly believe without a shadow of a doubt that this is the best way to eat and if anything my teeth will be getting healthier over time.  I actually feel that the sensitivity could be from previous decay/ cavities/ nerve injuries that are healing.

Peace,

Take a few pinches of baking soda and swish it around in your mouth after you eat a fruit meal for a few minutes than spit it out. It will create loads of saliva and help alkalize your mouth.

In general while chewing food the saliva should create a buffer to help protect your teeth from acids. But after you stop chewing is when problems can occur if you don't clean off the sugar and acid.

Don't brush right after eating since the enamel is weak for up to about an hour.

Do a search.  There have been lots of great tooth care posts.  Don Bennett also has a lot of great info on taking care of your teeth.

Are you a lot of eating overts (like nuts and seeds) or dried fruits? There things have a habit of sticking to the teeth and causing sensitivity, so you may want to cut them out.  I floss and rinse my mouth out after each meal and do not eat overts or dried fruits, and have no teeth sensitivity. Hope this helps <3
