In the summer we love eating and drinking cold things that feel refreshing, but having sensitive teeth can limit our ability to enjoy them. The good news is that in most cases we can help your teeth be less reactive so you can enjoy your cold treats again.
Your teeth may be sensitive to cold if:
If you are current with your dental care and feel sure there is no major problem, you can try remedies that you can do at home. This may include a special toothpaste that is designed to help sensitive teeth or remineralize them. You may also want to avoid foods, drinks, mouthwash, and chlorinated pools that expose your teeth to acid.
If you are behind in your dental care, home remedies are not working or simply want to enjoy your ice cream faster, give us a call. We can help you rule out serious issues, find the cause and get relief quickly.
If your teeth and gums are healthy, but still sensitive to cold, you may be grinding your teeth at night and irritating the nerves. We may recommend a special nightguard appliance to wear while you are sleeping that will protect your teeth and help calm the nerves down.
There is no reason to suffer in silence with sensitive teeth. We can help you resolve the sensitivity and start enjoying your cold treats again. Give us a call!
