When your teeth start showing signs of sensitivity, it can be the early symptoms of problems with your teeth.
Common Reasons for Cold SensitivityTooth decay, also known as a cavity, can easily cause cold sensitivity. This is especially true if the cavity is down by your gums. Getting that cavity filled should solve the problem with your tooth not liking super cold weather.
Having gum disease, especially advanced gum disease, often leaves you with sensitive teeth. The gums pull back from the roots of the teeth, exposing the sensitive nerves. This can make even being out in the cold a painful experience.
Exposed dentin from teeth that have been worn down can also cause sensitivity. This is common for people who suffer from bruxism, or a clenching and grinding of the teeth. This can also lead to cracks or breaks in the teeth, which can then also open up to allow cold air to travel in.
No matter what is causing your cold sensitivity, your dentist is your first line of defense. They will examine your mouth and discover what is causing your reaction to the cold. Then, they will talk with you about the best treatment plan to help alleviate your sensitivity.
