Is The Cold Weather Making Your Teeth Hurt?

Tuesday 17th May 2016

Winter brings many wonderful things like snowball fights, hot chocolate, and Christmas spirit. But unfortunately for some, it also brings sensitive teeth.

What causes sensitive teeth? Many want to know.

The cold weather is not in fact the cause for the sensitivity. Rather, it helps create the reaction that you are experiencing. There are many reasons for your teeth to have a sensitive reaction to the cold, such as:

  • Cracked or broken teeth,
  • Thin or weakened enamel,
  • Cavities,
  • Gum recession, or
  • Clenching or grinding your teeth.

All of these symptoms can be diagnosed and treated fairly easily by your dentist. If you experience any of these reactions, your dental provider will be able to help remedy your symptoms so you can get back to everything great that the winter season brings, so make an appointment today.
