Sensitive Teeth & Gums Tip

31 Jan

With Lyme disease we get very sensitive to all senses (sound, sight, touch..etc). But also our teeth and gums are very sensitive. It can be painful brushing our teeth and using mouth wash. Even cold or hot water can be painful. I eat sour candy to help with nausea and the acid will make my teeth extremely sensitive and I can feel nerves being hit when I brush near my gums.

Using my normal toothpaste was very painful and my whitening mouth wash made it worse. I could barely brush on some teeth without getting tears in my eyes. I found using Sensodyn Pronamel helps with this issue. Makes it a little easier to brush my teeth with less pain. After a week my teeth are less sensitive. I just can’t eat lemon juice or sour candy as often I need to. Hope this tip might help someone out there who knows this issue.

    I read an article the other day that says in order to help clear out the bacteria, you need a bonding agent like Apple Pectin, there were a few other listings but I can’t remember them (of course) lucky I remember what I did 5 minutes ago. If I find the website again, I will email it. Hope this comment helps someone.

    This is a problem I face on a daily basis. Because the joints in my jaws are so tight and painful, visits to a dentist are all but impossible.
