i am 13 years old. and for maybe about a month and it would be on and off. 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. if anyone has any idea please let me no
its best to get your dentist to check it out. it could be a cavity or gum recession or from your braces but only a dentist can tell for sure. it seems like you are having regular dental care so i wouldnt worry about it being anything serious. it might be something as simple as switching to a sensitive toothpaste.
I am currently doing invisalign braces and I do notice cold sensitivity within a few days of getting a new tray put in. Movement of the tooth can cause it to become hypersensitive. I would suggest you mention it to your dentist next time you see him, but I would not be too worried about it if you are getting routine visits.
Invisalign is very limited in what it can achieve. It only does small movements and does not correct a lot of problems that braces can, it also takes longer. I am only getting a few teeth realigned, not moving any more than half a mm. If you want, ask your orthodontist about it next time you go in, he can give you specifics. Invisalign still moves teeth, so would not help with the sensitivity.
That is how my front tooth is!! Every time i get a drink, my tooth feels like it is getting ripped out. Same when i breathe in cold air. If you have a solution to your problem, you should give me some options i can do!
