Common Questions and Answers about Sensitive tooth to cold

Avatar n tn The tooth is very sensitive to cold and a little sensitive to heat. (I have sensitive teeth anyway.) How long can a tooth be sensitive like this? 2. When I eat cold or hot things, it seems like the sensitivity radiates to my jaw. But I can't tell if this is because my jaw is so sore or because of the tooh. But I also have pain in my jaw at random times that is true TMJ pain. I also have a sinus infection, which makes my jaw hurt too! 3.
Avatar n tn A couple of weeks ago I began to notice that one of my molars was becoming very sensitive to cold and hot. It also hurt if I sucked air in and was sensitive to pressure. This tooth had a lot of silver filling in it. I went to the dentist and he x-rayed it. He said the root looked good. He also pressed on the tooth and surrounding teeth and this didn't really hurt. The dentist said he felt the tooth was cracked and he would put a temporary crown on it.
Avatar n tn But, when I deliberately drink something cold and move that liquid to the area where the root canal was done, it still causes pain (sensitive to cold water still). How would my dentist account for this? Only reason being, right after my root canal, and up to 3 days after, i did the same thing with putting cold water in my mouth, and NO pain. Now, it seems like its becoming sensitive to cold water again, but maybe because theres water entering back under my temporary cap again???
Avatar f tn Avoid all tooth pastes that contain silica or hydrated silica (strong abrasive, wears down dentin along the gum line which is the major cause for pain in sensitive teeth). You also have to work from the inside out, making sure to eat at least 50 % of your diet as organically grown RAW vegetables, favoring all leafy dark greens. Ubiquinol (the natural form of CoQ10) is also very important for gums as well as heart health.
Avatar m tn They put 2 new temporary crowns on my teeth. After this, I was very sensitive to cold on my left tooth but the right tooth was fine. The right tooth was the one I had the root canal done on. Then I went back a few weeks later for the permanent crown and they took the temporary off and my left tooth was extremely sensitive to cold, to air, to everything. The permanent crowns they sent were the wrong color so they had to send them back out and I had to get temporary ones put on again.
Avatar f tn For years, I have suffered from sensitive teeth. The pain from cold objects literally drive me mad. One bad habit that I know is causing the sensitivity is my avid consumption of acidic drinks, which I am trying to give up. I have sought the services of a periodontist, who said that I have the beginning stages of periodontal disease.
Avatar n tn ve always taken really good care of my teeth and still do. once I was around 15 weeks they became very sensitive to heat+cold and pressure. I'm 35 weeks now and nothing has changed and my teeth still are having problems. my dentist tried having me change to a softer tooth brush and toothpaste for sensitive teeth and it has not helped at all.
Avatar n tn i cracked my tooth (molar #15) on grain of sand. my tooth was sensitive to cold and the slightest touch. there was great pain upon biting, with relief after a few seconds. after six painful months arguing with three dentists/endodontists against rct, i was finally prepped for a gold crown. i agreed to proceed with rct *only* if pain persisted after receiving temporary crown. at the present time, one year plus later, i have no pain at all - with only a crown!
Avatar n tn He filled it with a white filling and it hurt for a few weeks and was sensitive to the cold. I went back to him and he took out the filling and put in a temporary one to see if it still hurt. It was completely pain free. I was able to chew on it and it was no longer sensitive to cold. I went back again and he refilled it with a white filling. It has been about 3 weeks and again I have pain when I chew and sensitivity to cold.
Avatar n tn Now i am having just a little pain in that tooth and more pain in the tooth right above it. It is sensitive to cold mostly. I went to endodontist and x rays looked good. Air did not bother them. She said a root canal is not needed right now but it stills hurts to drink cold things and a little sensitive to eat. It has been hurting now for 8 days. What should I do now?
Avatar m tn s been about a month since I had my dental crowns replaced (went from an all metal crown to porcealin fused to gold). Every time I have something cold on that side, I feel as if the coldness causes a LOT of sensitivity on that side for the one tooth. I asked my dentist abot this and he said it was because the tooth has a nerve that is still alive, which is making it functional.
Avatar m tn my right front tooth has been sensitive to cold, it has also been sensitive to cold air, when i would be outside and i would breath in heavly my tooth will get very sensitive. i have braces on top and bottom teeth (dont no if that could be a factor). i got my braces tightened 3 days ago and the sensitivity started this morning. i was thinking it could also be that my teeth have been moving around. i really dont want a cavity on one of my front teeth.
Avatar m tn I had a root canal on one of my front teeth, and had it internally bleached 4 times. It was fine when it was filled, etc., no crown, but now (just under 3 months later) it has started to become sensitive to cold, hot, extreme pressure (the other front tooth isn't) and tapping. It's not so bad that it's unbearable, but it can be pretty uncomfortable, and is gradually getting worse. It is starting now to be very mildly hurting almost constantly.
Avatar m tn He performed a sensitivity test by using ice. (Previously, about 4 months ago that molar tooth was sensitive to cold and specialist recommended a root canal. Did not go through with it because it only hurt when I had cold cold drinks in my mouth) I had no reaction to the ice from the dentist and so he then took out a device that would transmit an electric current through the tooth. I felt nothing. He recommended also a root canal. He gave me antibiotics and pain relief medicine.
Avatar n tn Neither tooth hurts when I chew now (only after eating). They are both very sensitive to hot and cold but the one (31) tooth still throbs randomly (waking me up at night). As long as I keep taking ibprofrin I am okay, there are no problems besides the sensitivity and throbbing. I know that white fillings take a little longer to get adjusted to, how long should I wait before I go back? My dentist has a few interns working w/ him, and the Dr.
Avatar m tn This is caused due to tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is tooth discomfort in one or more teeth that is triggered by hot, cold, sweet or sour foods and drinks, or even by breathing cold air. The pain can be sharp, sudden, and deep into the nerve endings of your teeth. There are some common ways these nerve endings can be exposed are through everyday use, traumatic injuries resulting in chips and fractures, untreated gum disease, brushing too hard or using a hard bristled tooth brush.
Avatar m tn I am 34 and the tooth in question is #2 molar with what appears to be two Amalgam fillings that are approx 20yo. The other day it started to become sensitive to hot/cold. Not really pain, but certainly uncomfortable. No problems otherwise. I am very concerned for my tooth and pocket book, but mostly the tooth...lol.. Is there any quick fast tests to determine if this is possibly an easy fix or if this is a real bad deal for me?
Avatar n tn Since graft procedure, the crowned tooth has become extremely sensitive to heat and cold and is also uncomfortable with chewing pressure. The tissue graft and harvest site have healed perfectly and both look "excellent" according to the periodontist that performed the procedure.
Avatar n tn Since then, this tooth has been hurting me, causing pain to radiate from my tooth to my jaw. It is sensitive - but not overly so - to cold and heat. I went to my dentist and he took an x-ray this week and saw no sign of decay or abscess. What could the problem be?
Avatar n tn He said there would be no more sensitivity to hot and cold and I would be able to bite on that side of my mouth in 2 days. WRONG. I am still sensitive to hot/cold. I can not use that side of my mouth. It HURTS to bite on it. What gives? Should I call the office and tell them?
Avatar n tn The took was EXTREMELY sensitive to the air, touch, you name it. He had to numb me for the permanent crown. turns out the permanent crown didn't fit right, so Had to be fitted for temp again. Now I am going on 3 weeks with temporary crown on and pressure pain and slight throbbing of the tooth. Is it possible that my tooth will not recover after being filed down for a crown? The tooth was perfectly fine until it was prepped for a crown.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had my tooth extracted in october 2008 and another teeth filled up for cavity.. After that I started to have sensitive tooth and that sensitiveness spreads to the body. When I feel that tooth sensitivity my whole body also feels sensitive and it takes a few minutes for my body to get adjusted to that sensitivity.. sometimes when i think about the feeling i feel sensivite. Now it is becoming a everyday problem. But no pain in the teeth.. will this sensitiveness go away..
Avatar n tn I m 28 years old female. My arms and feet are sensitive to cold. Even if it is 80F in home and my arms and feet are not covered I start sneezing. My medical history is good other than I'm allergic to dust, pollen etc.Since last year, I'm getting allergy shots. Can you help in finding why I feel cold?
Avatar f tn At any rate tooth is still sensitive to hot and cold. I went in to the endo who did the procedure and he touchd the tooth with cold and at the time in his office I did not feel much pain, but at the right angle on the back of this tooth, I will feel cold and its a sharp pain. Just to reassure myself I took a tooth pick and touched up along the top of this tooth around the gum line where the crown meets the gum. I feel pain when I touch the top of that tooth where some exposed dentin is.
Avatar n tn Since that time I continue to experience senstivity to hot and cold that seems to be coming from that same tooth. I can feel when I tap on that tooth, but not when tapping on the surrounding teeth. Is this an unusual problem? When I return to my Endodontist, what questions should I ask to make sure he deals with the problem appropriately? In calling him he has said that it could not be the tooth that had the root canal, but must be a surrounding tooth.
Avatar n tn Perhaps the following few days after I just drank cold water and the pain would start to come back though not as severe. It has been 3 weeks or so since I first felt that sharp pain in my tooth though now I barely feel anything when drinking a cold class or milk, water, juice. However I do feel a slight pressure on the questionable tooth.
Avatar n tn The past few weeks they have been very sensitive when it comes to rinsing my mouth with cold water after brushing. So much so that I started using warm water to do so. I have discovered that they each have a ridge along the very top on the front side of the tooth. Above the ridge, if touched with a finger, is extremely sensitive. None of my other teeth have this particular ridge or sensitivity issue. Thank you so much for your help.
