If you have tooth pain and sensitivity related to a lack of enamel, you can try these tips to reduce discomfort: Use a toothpaste specifically made for sensitive teeth. They contain fewer irritants that could cause discomfort.

Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Avoid foods and drinks known to worsen tooth pain, like high-sugar foods, fizzy drinks, and foods and drinks at extreme temperatures.

Wear a mouthguard at night if you grind your teeth.

Gargle with a saltwater solution twice daily by mixing 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of lukewarm water and swishing for 30 seconds.

Soak a piece of cotton in clove oil and apply it to your painful tooth or gum area. Allow the oil to sit on the area for 5 to 10 minutes.

Swish clove oil mixed with coconut oil in your mouth for 10 to 15 minutes. This is a practice known as oil pulling.
