teeth health smile dentalTooth sensitivity may develop due to sugary drinks and improper tooth brushing. One in every eight people suffers from tooth sensitivity.

Key takeaways:

· Brush your teeth gently using a soft-bristled toothbrush twice every day. You should use short strikes following the up and down movement.

· Rinse your mouth with fluoride mouthwash after brushing to protect teeth from cavities and tooth decay.

· Stay away from highly acidic foods and drinks such as citrus fruits and citrus fruit-based juices that cause enamel erosion, leading to sensitive teeth and tooth decay.
