Does your tooth sensitivity to cold make you hot under the collar? Please know that you’re not out in the cold and that millions have eased these chilling pains with a few simple steps. Find out the various sensitive teeth causes and how to chase away the chill.

What Are Common Sensitive Teeth Causes?

The only way to find your actual sensitive teeth causes is to have an examination by a dental care professional. But there are many different reasons why your teeth twinge when exposed to cold. Your dental health and habits are the most likely sources of suffering, but following are some common causes of tooth sensitivity:

  • Teeth that are fractured, cracked, or chipped
  • Cavities or tooth decay near the gum line
  • Severe periodontal disease
  • Gingivitis
  • Badly fitting crowns or fillings
  • Harsh brushing
  • Abrasive toothpastes
  • Foods and beverages that are highly acidic
  • Grinding and clenching teeth

How Can I Deal with Tooth Sensitivity?

After a dental care professional has determined your sensitive teeth causes, you can deal with your dental distress. Use these tips and techniques to give tooth sensitivity the cold shoulder:

  • Follow proper dental care habits with regular brushing, flossing, and exams
  • Brush gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Choose a non-abrasive toothpaste made for sensitive teeth
  • Avoid long-term damage by getting dental problems corrected
