To prevent sensitive teeth from recurring, your dentist might offer suggestions to help you maintain your oral health. Twice a day, brush your teeth with a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Floss Daily. Avoid vigorous or harsh scrubbing, highly abrasive toothpaste, and excessive brushing and flossing. If you grind your teeth, ask about a mouth guard. Tooth grinding (bruxism) can fracture teeth and cause sensitivity.
