The cold dry winter air can affect your teeth, countless numbers of people notice that they usually feel sudden toothache or sensitivity during cold season. For this reason there are useful tips on how to avoid tooth pain during the cold season, so you can still enjoy your favorite winter activities:
- Have a hot beverage with you when you are outside. This can greatly ease tooth pain as the teeth are warmed up with a warm beverage. Hot water will do as well.
- As much as possible, consider breathing in and out through the nose. Breathing through the mouth will only bring the cold air directly in contact with the teeth.
- You should rinse with a fluoride-based oral rinse at least 2 times a day. For those with cold-sensitive teeth, fluoride-based toothpaste and mouthwash can be of great help.
- Use desensitizing toothpastes if you have sensitive teeth. These help restrain the sensations which can cause the pain linked with sensitive teeth.
