Improving dental health with the use of oil pulling is not a 21st century concept, although it has recently gained much popularity as many people are wondering how to keep teeth healthy naturally.

Our dentists in Claremont see many patients with teeth that keep chipping. Having a tooth that recurrently chips can be frustrating and highly inconvenient.
The enamel coating around your teeth is one of the strongest materials in your body. However, when exposed to ongoing wear and tear or sudden physical trauma, it’s quite possible for the enamel to weaken, resulting in a chipped tooth.
Many people suffer with the discomfort caused by temperature sensitive teeth on a daily basis, making it almost impossible to enjoy a warm cup of coffee or an ice cream on a hot summer’s day.
The truth is that a large number of people with tooth sensitivities eventually learn to live with the pain they experience every time they consume something hot or cold.
However, by understanding what causes tooth sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures, it’s easier to find ways to decrease the level of sensitivity you experience.
