It’s winter and cold outside. Do you notice walking outside finding yourself curling your lips over your teeth to protect them from the chilly air? Are you using your sensitive type tooth paste religiously? Asking for no ice in a drink when you’re out to eat? Dr. Brad Sammons and his Team at the Center for Advanced Dentistry hear this from patients every day.
Sensitive teeth to cold is a very common problem. … Often the part of the tooth that becomes sensitive is the dentin that is exposed due to the wearing of the outer protective layers of enamel and cementum. However, sensitivity could also result from a cavity, a lost or loose filling, or an exposed root surface.
