Welcoming Environment

My tooth is very sensitive to cold. Should I be concerned?

Colorado Springs DentistSudden sensitivity to temperatures can be indicative of a dental issue. If you are in Colorado Springs and suddenly notice a change in your teeth and gums, please call us at Springs Family Dental immediately so we can arrange a dental evaluation.

The Root Cause

When teeth are sensitive to cold, most of the time it is due to one of two things: receding gums or a symptomatic nerve. If the gums are receding, it may be a sign of gum disease, and you should contact a dentist for an evaluation. If the nerve is symptomatic, it could mean that it is dying, and could eventually lead to an abscess. Our dental office can help diagnose and treat either of these conditions.
