Winter Tooth Pain

Posted on 6/20/2022 by Premier Dental
When winter arrives, so do jackets, boots, skiing, and warm drinks. For some, those winter days also can cause toothaches. What causes these toothaches and what can you do to treat them? Tooth Sensitivity High altitude, tooth sensitivity, and dental trauma are the most common causes of winter tooth pain. When the tooth enamel cracks or wears down, the dentin becomes exposed, leading to tooth sensitivity. Dental dentin protects the nerves in the tooth. It can cause pain when exposed to certain foods, beverages, or even cold air. If you experience sensitivity, avoid cold and hot beverages and spicy foods, and then schedule a visit to your dentist since tooth sensitivity is treatable. A dentist can rule out serious concerns like a cracked tooth, infection, or cavity. In some cases, changing your toothpaste might be enough to provide you with the best treatment. High Altitude Even a change in the atmospheric pressure can cause tooth pain. When scuba divers go into deep water, they experience a pressure referred to as a "tooth squeeze." The same effect can also be felt at high altitudes, such as when skiing. You should see a dentist if you experience tooth pain while being in higher altitudes. Damaged fillings or crowns, cracked teeth, tooth decay, or worn enamel are the most common problems. Is your mouth feeling tight? Foods and drinks that are hot or cold can make the pain worse.

Wearing a mouthguard while playing winter sports will keep your teeth safe from injury. A dentist can help you determine the most appropriate treatment, as well as establish a foundation for care in case of trauma. Despite the fact that mouthguards are not 100% effective, they can reduce dental trauma and tooth pain....
