I scream, you scream, we all scream when we bite into ice cream!!!!!!
One of the most common tooth ailments is sensitivity to cold. Cold water, biting into cold apples, ice cream, popsicles and more.
Our teeth have living, active nerves inside them. So if you have sensitivity to cold temperatures, when something cold hits the teeth it sends the message to the nerve to react with pain.
A sensitivity toothpaste can go a long way in helping to reduce or completely eliminate this bad feeling. They all work a little bit differently but in essence they build up on the enamel or areas of recession to block access to the nerve.
Another alternative to sensitivity toothpaste, is a high fluoride toothpaste and fluoride mouth rinse. Not only does fluoride help to prevent cavities but it also acts as a desensitizer. Using the two of these together can give you a double whammy of cavity protection and eliminating cold sensitivity.
