How to soothe sensitive teeth

Don’t cut Yummy
From your diet

Harmful foods like candy and soft drinks can damage enamel, leading to sensitivity and cavities.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to stop enjoying your favourites.

Just follow these tips to ease discomfort from tooth sensitivity.

1. HANDLE WITH CARE

Brush sensitive teeth gently to avoid damaging the enamel.

2. BE ON GUARD

If you suffer from teeth grinding, be sure to wear a mouth guard.

3. TAKE A BREAK

Give teeth whitening treatments a break as it can thin out enamel. Use Listerine® Healthy Bright instead for gentle, peroxide-free whitening.

4. COUNT EVERY SECOND

Head to a dentist if discomfort lasts more than a minute. Your doctor will coat your teeth with fluoride to protect them.
