Prevent dental problems and maintain your oral hygiene
Sensitivity causes the pain and discomfort you never want to experience. According to the Academy of General Dentistry in the United States, about 40 million people experience tooth sensitivity. The sensation in your mouth is stimulated due to damage done to your enamel and cementum layer. The two layers protect the tooth from extreme cold, heat, or sticky food to reach the roots. Enamel protects the tooth’s crown, and cementum is under the gum line to protect the roots.
These layers, when damaged due to any reason, can cause sensitivity. Here are some home remedies that help you deal with sensitivity. Take care of your oral hygiene so that you don’t have to avoid your morning tea anymore.
- Green Tea – Use Green Tea as a mouthwash twice a day; it strengthens the teeth and reduces inflammation.
- Salt Water – Rinse your mouth twice regularly with the solution of ½ teaspoon of salt with 8oz of warm water to alleviate the pain.
- Garlic – The allicin in the garlic can naturally reduce bacteria’s and reduces the pain. It can be directly applied on the sensitive teeth or in the paste with a clove of garlic, ½ teaspoon of salt, and few drops of water.
- Onion – The vegetable with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. You can put a piece directly on the affected tooth.
- Coconut Oil – The anti-inflammatory property in the oil can aid with the reduction of pain. Rinse your mouth with it for two minutes.
- Use soft brushes and change them every two or three months.
