The Role of Your Dentist
Only a dentist can confirm you have dentine hypersensitivity. If you are experiencing any dentine problems, always consult your dentist for advice. They can advise you on the most suitable oral care routine for you, and the best toothbrushing technique, how often and when. If you feel you are at risk of acid wear, talk to your dentist for advice, for example, on how best to consume the many acidic foods and drinks in the modern diet. You can also try a toothpaste specially formulated to help protect teeth against acid erosion such as Pronamel.

When to see your dentist?
Please remember there are many other causes of dental pain than tooth sensitivity. If you feel discomfort or pain in your teeth at any time, we recommend you visit your dentist to ask for advice as soon as you can. How often you see your dentist depends upon your individual oral health, and your dentist will recommend a frequency of visits that is right for you.
