|Spring is the time when you begin to put up things in order after the grueling harsh winter. It brings about weather changes that see warm temperatures and increased allergy season.
Many plants that had wilted in winter begin to grow and sprout, there is excess pollen in the air. In spring time, the weather is warm and humid, the nights can also be pretty cold. You may want to know why your teeth ache in the spring.
Breathing Through Mouth In Cold
If your teeth are sensitive when you inhale the cold air in time of spring, it could bring about a toothache. You may have tooth sensitivity to temperature because of the microscopic cracks or even large cracks found in your teeth. It may also happen if you have cavities.
Having weak enamel and shrinking gums may also cause tooth sensitivity in spring. If you have crowns, bridges, and fillings that have been eroded over time, it could also cause sensitivity. Instead of breathing through the mouth, you can do it through the nose.
The tongue, lips, and chicks tend to form an insulation to your teeth that helps during extreme weather.
Increased Pollen in Air
The growing plants and blossoming flowers in time of spring increase the amount of pollen in the air. People who develop allergies to pollens may have sinus problems. The sinuses may swell because of congestion.
The swollen sinuses push the roots of your teeth resulting in pain. It's that pressure created on the roots of your teeth that contributes to toothache. The pain may be felt in the teeth located on the upper part in the back of your mouth.
If it's spring time and you are having extended or abrupt tooth sensitivity and pain, it could be due to changes in pressure. It may happen because of the sinus congestion and pressure, that in turn, pushes the roots of your teeth.
