Stop Tooth Sensitivity Cold

If cold foods and drinks create burning sensations in teeth, then you’re facing the common condition of tooth sensitivity to cold. There’s no need to get hot and bothered. Now you can learn about causes and discover the best dental care treatments.

Biting Cold Conditions

There are many different reasons why your teeth twinge when exposed to cold. The most common sensitive teeth causes are oral health and poor dental care habits. But the only way to find your cause is to have an examination by a dentist. You can expect that it’s one of these dental dilemmas:

  • Cavities
  • Tooth decay near the gum line
  • Gingivitis or more severe stages of gum disease
  • Cracked, chipped, or fractured teeth
  • Teeth grinding and clenching
  • Improperly fitting fillings or crowns
  • Harsh brushing
  • Abrasive toothpastes
  • Highly acidic foods and beverages

The Hot Ticket for Treatment

Once you know your sensitive teeth causes, you can focus on fixing the problem. Try these dental care tips and techniques to give tooth sensitivity the cold shoulder:

  • Maintain good dental care habits with regular brushing, flossing, and check-ups
  • Try a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Brush your teeth very gently, yet thoroughly
  • Use a desensitizing toothpaste
  • Correct dental problems to prevent long-term damage
