Cold Weather and Sensitive Teeth

With the cold winter months upon us, some have noticed their teeth being sensitive to the cold. While hot and cold sensitivity is common, there are things you can do to help relieve the pain of sensitive teeth. First, don’t brush too hard. Brushing aggressively can wear down the enamel on your teeth, as well as damage and push back your gums, which exposes your root area. You also want to make sure your toothbrush is soft enough. A soft bristled toothbrush will help you in being gentle with brushing, and to your gums.

Grinding and clenching your teeth causes tooth sensitivity. Do your best to not grind and clench during the day, and if you clench at night, you may want to look into using a night guard.

Last, but not least, make sure you maintain proper oral hygiene. You should be brushing your teeth twice a day, and flossing to prevent conditions such as periodontal disease.

If you would like to learn more about tooth sensitivity, contact our dental office and speak to a member of our knowledgeable staff.
