Feeling Hot Or Cold On Some Teeth

There are 2 basic reasons for sensitivity, feeling hot or cold in our teeth.

Sharing Tooth Brush

Sharing tooth brush could be dangerous. Human saliva is now known to be transmitter of various diseases, remnants of which are present on the tooth brush. All human beings have a separate flora of bacteria in their mouth and body which can be transferred via brush from one individual to another and thus can be harmful. Plus microscopic dead skin fragments are also present on a tooth brush so sharing a tooth brush is very unhygienic.

Eating Tooth Paste In Kids

Eating tooth paste can be harmful. Tooth pastes contain fluoride, and fluoride after a certain quantity can be very harmful. That is why the children’s tooth pastes contain relatively lesser quantity of fluoride then adult products. So, parents should make it a point to buy children’s tooth paste for kids and see that they do not eat a lot of it. Eating some is alright.

Treatment is very important for which you have to visit your dentist.
