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 White 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.

SWISH FOR STRENGTH

The American Dental Association© recommends using a fluoride mouthwash* to prevent cavities that can cause tooth sensitivity.
