Dentine is a soft substance found directly beneath the hard layer of enamel on our teeth. Everyday habits can cause a loss of dentine, leading to tooth pain and sensitivity. Toothpaste alone won’t help this sensitivity.
- Brushing too hard can wear down tooth surfaces, exposing sensitive dentine.
- Some toothpastes are too harsh and can affect enamel and dentine.
- Failure to follow a dentist’s instructions on brushing can harm enamel.
Talk to your dentist about tooth sensitivity to get advice.
