Enemy #1: Cold Stuff39
Thought you’d drown your sensitive-teeth worries in a pint of ice cream? Think again. Your enamel is like a coat that shields the dentine when frosty treats hit the tooth surface and when it’s worn down, cold stuff really hurts. Even breathing in cold air can lead to that unexpected feeling of sensitivity pain in your teeth.
Enemy #2: Hot Stuff39
Just as you wouldn’t want to have boiling-hot water splashed on your skin, your teeth can’t handle hot temperature liquids when your enamel is worn down.
Enemy #3: Acidic Stuff39
Your favorite beverages can make a big difference, too. Anything with a high acid level like carbonated soft drinks, coffee, tea, juices, wine, and energy drinks- can worsen enamel erosion and discomfort.
Enemy #4: Sweet Stuff39
Another acid culprit is sugar. The bacteria in your mouth love sugar, and the more of it you eat, the more acid they make. We know many people have a sweet tooth, but some of the worst offenders to avoid are fizzy drinks, some sports drinks and juice.
