Instead of trying to simply hide out inside all winter long, there are a few things you can do to help. Consider these treatments to give you a better level of protection.
Protecting Your Teeth from Bitterly Cold WindsFirst, cover your mouth with a scarf whenever you go outside. No matter how cold it gets, this will help cut down on the cold that goes into your mouth, and make it slightly less frigid inside your mouth. Second, try and keep your mouth closed as much as you can. Breathing through your nose helps limit how much cold gets into your mouth.
However, this can be difficult if you have a case of the winter sniffles, so just do your best.
Third, give your dentist a call. See if you can come in and get looked at. He or she may be able to help protect your teeth a bit more from the cold by applying sealants, or even by filling a cavity that could be the source of your pain.
Winter doesn't have to mean misery for your mouth. It also doesn't have to mean hiding out in warm houses instead of being able to go out and have fun. Contact our office if you cannot go out in the cold winds without pain.
They will have you come in and take a look to see what the problem could be. Then, they can talk with you to figure out some type of a treatment plan to bring you some relief.
