As temperatures drop, people with sensitive teeth could experience increased pain.When your teeth already hurt, exposing them to the cold winter air can be just as painful as eating and drinking hot and cold foods and beverages, according to the Academy of General Dentistry.

Suggested remedies:

1. Have your dentist seal the sensitive area with cement or plastic.

2. Apply a special fluoride gel prescribed by your dentist. It also may help to use a soft-bristled toothbrush to massage the gel onto your gums after brushing.

3. Brush with an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste.
