Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from sensitivity for the past one year. So I was using desensitizing toothpaste, which was helpful for this. But when I use desensitizing toothpaste, some saliva comes out of my mouth, and it stays till I take breakfast, which is disturbing. I do not smoke and do not take any other drugs.

Welcome to icliniq.com

Check for any abrasion (wearing) of teeth from the sides, close to gums. They happen due to brushing too hard. I suggest using a soft brush and do not press too hard on the teeth. The sensitive teeth should be restored (filled) first, then get your teeth and gums cleaned to remove all calculus and plaque.

Thank you.
