The Weather Can Affect the Way Your Teeth Feel

Posted on 5/20/2017 by Lemond Hunter

Have you ever gone outside during the middle of a snowstorm and had the cold wind cause pain in your teeth? This is due to your teeth being sensitive.

While there are quite a few potential causes, the most common cause is a decrease in the enamel of your teeth. It could be thinning due to aging, acid erosion, or improper care.

If you have ever gone out and had the heat or the cold impact how your teeth felt, you need to give your dentist a call. They can help you feel better.

How Your Dentist Can Help with Tooth Sensitivity

There are many ways that your dentist can help you if you are suffering from tooth sensitivity. They can help seal your teeth with sealants, which has been known to take some of the edge off in certain circumstances. They may also want to take a good look around your mouth to ensure that the sensitivity isn't coming from a cavity.

If you have no signs of a cavity, they can recommend toothpastes that have a good chance of helping to relieve your pain. They may also suggest that you wear a mouth guard during extreme weather if you have to go outside to help protect your teeth.

No matter what is causing your teeth to become sensitive to the weather, your dentist is going to be the one to have the most solutions for you. They can get a good idea what could be causing the issues from an examination, and then they can tell you what solutions they believe would work best for you.

Give your dentist a call today and give them a rundown of what is going on. Contact our office, and go in and see what options they can provide.
