National Ice Cream Month is celebrated each year in July in the United States. We hope you can enjoy a delicious ice cream any time of the year! However, if you are experiencing tooth sensitivity the thought of eating ice cream can be painful.
The problem of sensitive teeth is a very common one. Tooth sensitivity implies a reaction to something hot/cold/sweet. This may be from food, drink or even from cold air. Sometimes brushing and flossing can stimulate symptoms.
The level of discomfort felt will vary between people and depends to an extent on what is causing the problem. What brings on the pain and it’s duration will also vary. Sensitive teeth symptoms may be experienced as a slight twinge (‘tingling’ teeth) or, at the other end of the spectrum, it may give severe pain for hours at a time.
