In the last four months, I’ve somehow managed to identify two new sensitive spots on the inner sides of my molars. Any time anything very cold touches them, it’s like electricity flying because of my nerve endings being hit. It’s been making it difficult for me to eat cold things, so I started using Pronamel sensitive teeth toothpaste and have been eating cold things very slowly and deliberately. I usually try to chew on the front side of my mouth, away from the back where the sensitive spots are, and then I swallow.
This makes me sound old and pathetic. I haven’t even reached 30 yet and my teeth are already bothering me. The most frustrating part about all this is that I’m so good to my teeth; I haven’t had a cavity since I was under the age of 10, I brush my teeth twice a day and floss every night, and I even wear my retainer and mouth guard each night to Chris’s absolute disgust. I’m sure that despite wearing my mouth guard that my jaw still clenches at night. I guess there’s nothing I can do about that, sadly. I just don’t know what else there is to do to prevent any more sensitive spots from cropping up.
It’s these moments when sometimes, I think it may be easier to just have all false teeth. Then, there would be no nerve endings at the end of the teeth to sting my mouth.
