Winter is the season when most of the people suffer from toothaches. The cold temperature makes the teeth extremely sensitive, this sensitivity, then, causes a lot of pain and discomfort. Further, the consumption of hot beverages during cold weather can worsen the sensitivity and cause unbearable pain due to quick change in temperatures. Just like hair and skin, our teeth also need special care during the winters.
As winter is about to start, here are some tips by Dentists in Udaipur, which you can use to take care of your teeth during winter.

Brush with a soft-bristle toothpaste
Brushing regularly is one of the easiest ways to take care of your teeth. A brush with hard bristles can make your teeth more sensitive and cause pain.

You can also consider using an electric toothbrush or you can also ask for suggestions from your dentist.

Use toothpaste made for sensitive teeth

To take care of your teeth during winters, use the toothpaste specially made for sensitive teeth. You can use fluoride-based toothpaste to ease the pain caused by the sensitivity.

Don’t over brush

Use a mouthwash
