Do you feel pangs of pain when your teeth come into contact with cold temperatures? It may be cold comfort to learn that millions of people feel your pain, but the prevalence of tooth sensitivity has fortunately led to numerous treatments. Take a moment to warm up to the many reasons and remedies.

Sensitive Teeth Causes

This is a wide range of reasons why your teeth tingle when touched by cold. The most common sensitive teeth causes are dental health and habits. But the only way to find your cause is to have an examination by a dental care professional. Here are some of the most common causes of tooth sensitivity:

  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Poorly fitting fillings or crowns
  • Cavities
  • Decay near the gum line
  • Gingivitis
  • Severe periodontal disease
  • Harsh brushing
  • Abrasive toothpastes
  • Acidic foods and drinks
  • Teeth grinding and clenching

Dental Care for Tooth Sensitivity

After you’ve learned your sensitive teeth causes, you can get the dental care that’s right for your case. Try these dental tips and techniques to give tooth sensitivity the cold shoulder:

  • Practice good dental care habits with regular brushing, flossing, and check-ups
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Brush gently, yet thoroughly
  • Select a toothpaste for sensitive teeth
  • Fix dental problems to avoid long-term damage
