Why does my tooth hurt when I take a breath of cold air?

Why does my tooth hurt when I take a breath of cold air?

      As time enters December, the sudden drop in temperature in various regions has caused some people's old problems to return. 

In addition to the obvious pain caused by some shutdown diseases, many people also have obvious toothaches. 

Sometimes their teeth will hurt for a long time after opening their mouths and taking a breath of cool air. Oral doctors tell everyone 

that this is mainly caused by dental caries or acute pulpitis.

Toothache is the most common symptom of oral diseases and can be caused by many diseases, such as dental caries, acute pulpitis, periodontitis, acute and chronic apical periodontitis, dentin hypersensitivity, tooth cracks or root fractures, etc. When the temperature drops in winter, the too-cool air can irritate your teeth and easily cause tooth pain. Let’s take a look at the differences between toothaches caused by different causes.

1. Dental caries

      Toothache caused by dental caries is caused by toothache caused by cavities in the teeth. When encountering stimuli such as cold, heat, sourness, sweetness, etc., or when food is embedded in the cavities, toothache will stop immediately after the irritating factors are removed; the weather is cold in winter , so it often causes toothache.

2. Periodontitis

      Toothache caused by periodontitis is characterized by persistent dull pain, accompanied by red and swollen gums, bleeding and pus, and even loose teeth and gum recession.


3. Acute and chronic apical periodontitis

      Toothache caused by acute and chronic apical periodontitis manifests as persistent throbbing pain, a feeling of elongation or floating of the tooth, and the inability to chew food.

4. Acute pulpitis

      Toothache caused by acute pulpitis manifests as spontaneous, paroxysmal tooth pain, which is aggravated by hot or cold stimulation or when resting at night. It is caused by deep caries, deep periodontal pockets, etc. Patients generally cannot clearly point out the pain. In the area of the tooth, toothache can still last for a long time after the irritating factors are removed, and the pain can be relieved after pulpotomy surgery.

In addition, diseases that can induce toothache include trigeminal neuralgia, osteomyelitis of the jaw, dry socket, wisdom tooth pericoronitis, acute suppurative maxillary sinusitis, jaw malignant tumors, gingival malignant tumors, jaw dentigerous cysts, Upper respiratory tract infection, heart disease, leukemia, hysteria, neurasthenia, etc. Toothache caused by different causes has different treatment methods. If the right medicine is not given to the cleavage, it may be counterproductive. Therefore, if you feel toothache, you should first go to the hospital for diagnosis, and then seek medical treatment from the corresponding department.
