Dear MEL Topic Readers,

‘Ice-cream toothache’: Cold food and drinks pain explained

Do you feel toothache when you have ice cream or iced drink? Some people have sensitive teeth to such sudden temperature drops. But why? Researchers found that if the underlying dentine below enamel becomes exposed, painful stimuli will cause pain. Such enamel exposure could be caused by tooth decay or gum disease. So, if you feel pain often when you have cold food or drink, you may want to have your teeth checked by a dentist. In the meantime, such tooth pain or dentine hypersensitivity can be treated by specifically designed toothpaste or even chewing gum. However, they won’t cure the cause of the pain. So, in any case, if you feel pain, you’d better see the dentist. Indeed, nerves are there to warn problems.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about the mechanism of toothache by cold stuff.
