Sensitive teeth to cold can be uncomfortable and may indicate an underlying dental issue. Sensitive teeth can turn enjoying your favorite ice cream into a painful experience. At Wilmot Family Dentistry, we recognize tooth sensitivity’s impact on your daily life. Whether it’s a twinge while sipping a cold beverage or a sharp sensation while brushing, cold Sensitivity can be uncomfortable and frustrating. Let’s explore the causes behind sensitive teeth and discover effective home remedies to ease the discomfort.  

Here are some common causes and home remedies for sensitive teeth to cold:

Causes of sensitivity to cold

  1. Enamel erosion: The protective enamel covering your teeth can wear down over time due to acidic foods, aggressive brushing, or certain medical conditions. When enamel erodes, it exposes the sensitive underlying dentin, leading to Sensitivity, especially to cold temperatures.
  2. Gum recession: Receding gums can expose the roots of your teeth, which lack the protective enamel covering found on the crowns. This exposure can make your teeth more sensitive to cold stimuli.
  3. Tooth decay: Cavities can compromise the structure of your teeth, making them more susceptible to Sensitivity, particularly when exposed to cold temperatures.
  4. Cracked teeth: Hairline cracks in your teeth can allow cold temperatures to reach the nerves inside the tooth, triggering Sensitivity.
  5. Dental procedures: Sensitivity to cold may develop after specific dental treatments such as fillings, crowns, or teeth whitening.

Causes of sensitivity to cold

Home remedies to Cold sensitivity

  1. Desensitizing toothpaste: Consider switching to a toothpaste specifically formulated for sensitive teeth. These toothpaste contain ingredients like potassium nitrate or strontium chloride, which can help block the transmission of sensations from the tooth surface to the nerve.
  2. Gentle brushing technique: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and avoid vigorous brushing, as aggressive brushing can contribute to enamel erosion and gum recession, exacerbating Sensitivity.
  3. Limit acidic foods and drinks: Acidic foods and beverages can contribute to enamel erosion. Limit your consumption of citrus fruits, sodas, and sports drinks to help protect your enamel.
  4. Fluoride mouthwash: Rinse with a fluoride mouthwash daily to strengthen enamel and reduce Sensitivity.
  5. Wear a mouthguard: If you grind your teeth, especially at night, wearing a mouthguard can help protect your teeth from damage and reduce Sensitivity.
  6. Professional fluoride treatment: Your dentist can apply a fluoride gel or varnish to strengthen your enamel and decrease Sensitivity.
  7. Maintain good oral hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to remove plaque buildup and prevent dental problems that can contribute to Sensitivity.

To effectively manage tooth sensitivity to cold, incorporating the following habits into the  oral care routine can make a significant difference:

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: Opt for a toothbrush with soft bristles and brush gently in a circular motion to avoid further enamel wear and gum recession.

Practice proper oral hygiene: Brush your teeth twice daily and floss daily to remove plaque buildup and prevent dental problems that can exacerbate Sensitivity.

Avoid acidic foods and drinks: Limit your intake of acidic foods like citrus fruits, tomatoes, and vinegar, as well as acidic beverages such as soda and fruit juices.

Quit smoking: Tobacco products can contribute to gum disease and enamel erosion, increasing tooth sensitivity. Quitting smoking can improve overall oral health and reduce Sensitivity.

Visit your dentist regularly: Regular dental check-ups allow your dentist to monitor your oral health, identify potential issues early, and provide personalised recommendations for managing tooth sensitivity.

Dr. Lyman and his team are the best! The pano machine was down last week but they made sure to call me right away when it was fixed and scheduled me in the next week. Front desk is approachable, friendly and super nice. The wait times aren’t really long and that’s perfect! Thought I was only getting my X-rays today but they pulled through with pulling my wisdom teeth and reassured me everything was going to be ok. Recommend this dental for a family like feel. Definitely coming back again!
