Teeth pain during the colder months?

Whether it’s walking down the street or during exercise, some people have teeth pain during the colder months. I had one patient this week relate:

tooth pain

“My teeth hurt really badly early in the morning as I walk from my house to my car”

  • Cold sensitivity could be caused by several factors:
  • Clenching or grinding teeth
  • Gum shrinkage
  • Cracked teeth
  • Cavities
  • Thin enamel
  • Weakened enamel
  • Tooth bruising from trauma or eating

If the sensitivity lasts longer than three days, I suggest you make an appointment to visit your dentist.

There are also 7 ways to try to remedy cold sensitivity at home:

1. Pay attention to what causes cold sensitivity and try to track it

2. Find the cause of gum shrinkage and treat it appropriately

3. Rinse with a fluoride mouthwash two to three times per day. This will assist in sealing the cold-sensitive teeth.

4. Rinse with sodium bicarbonate and water to bathe and soothe the mouth.

5. Avoid alcohol-containing rinses

6. Wear a bite guard to reduce pressures on your teeth

7. Care for cracked teeth and cavities as soon as you catch them
