This cold weather feels a little bit unrelenting. After the new year starts, and the holidays die down, winter seems so long. These single digit temperatures, and sometimes even the teens really can do a number on you.

Maybe as you’re walking outdoors, you even notice how the cold feels as you breathe in. Cold sensitivity is a big issue for a lot of patients, and it’s something you should mention to us at your next appointment.

Our doctors and hygienists may be able to recommend a sensitivity toothpaste for you, or might look at your teeth and your brushing techniques and make other suggestions for you based on this information.

The American Dental Association has a site where you can check on sensitivity and other dental symptoms. Feel free to set up an appointment or give us a call if the cold, or anything else, is making your teeth feel too sensitive.
