tooth sensitivity

I have the same problem with molar wear...they are riddled with deep pockets on the occluding surface and hurt when I eat citrus, sugar or hard stuff. I avoid those foods when possible, rinse a ton after eating them, brush gently 3x per day. A great help has been a prescription toothpaste that has a lot of fluoride in it. I use it at night, or even sometimes dab a tiny bit into the tooth holes to reduce the pain. It works. This toothpaste supposedly helps rebuild enamel, which I can't understand, but can cause cancer if used too often. Also, use Sensodyne or Pronamel toothpastes regularly. Obviously, wear a nigtguard religioously. Don't eat sugar within 5 hours of bedtime to reduce liklihood of grinding.
