Sore throats, also called icings, in the teeth produce a sudden and not infrequent pain that usually occurs when we eat or drink something cold. The causes vary and can be treated.
Angling and tingling in the teeth can go away by itself but if you feel that it does not or if the pain affects you in your everyday life, contact a dentist or dental hygienist.
Cause of teething and tingling
There can be many different reasons why you suffer from tingling and tingling in your teeth. Possible treatment is also more or less directly linked to the underlying cause.
Common causes of tingling and tingling in the teeth
- Tooth decay.
- Cracks in the teeth.
- Damage to the gums where the tooth root appeared.
The latter can depend on how to brush the teeth as incorrect tooth brushing can cause damage to the particular gums and the tooth root is exposed.
Diagnosis of teeth whitening and icing
In addition to describing your problems yourself, you examine the teeth for damage or caries, take a closer look at whether there are injuries that have occurred during tooth brushing or if you suffer from an unstable bite that can lead to worn or cracked teeth. Your teeth are also examined for burns. Just as with a regular examination, X-rays are taken to detect any damage. By blowing air on the tooth it is possible to test if the tooth is sensitive to the particular cold, there is also a method that is used to see if the tooth is alive or is extra sensitive to heat, pressure or load.
If you feel that the trouble is not over or affect your everyday life, you should contact the dental office. This also applies if you experience persistent pain in the tooth and if the tooth is sensitive to both heat and cold. At a dentist or dental hygienist you can do a proper examination and find out the cause of your problems. If necessary, you can also get a referral to a specialist.
Treatments for licks and icings in the teeth
The treatment varies depending on the cause of the seizures and the icings. If the trouble is due to sensitive tooth necks, superficial cracks or tooth loss, a treatment with fluoride, fluorine varnish, can help. You can also get advice on brushing your teeth while avoiding further damage to the gums.
When gnashing, you often take the help of a bite rail that protects your teeth. Tooth rubbing can be due to stress and it is therefore also important to deal with any stress in life. If you experience whitening from the tooth surface and the tooth necks, there is a form of permanent varnish that clogs the sensitive surface of the tooth.
If the cause of your punctures and icings is a hole in your teeth or a broken filling, you will fix it. In unusual cases, if the tooth cannot be repaired, the tooth may need to be removed. It is also uncommon for implants in teeth to be caused by pain from nerves in the jaw. If this is suspected, a doctor should investigate and treat toothache. You will therefore usually receive a referral to a specialist doctor if the dentist or dental hygienist suspects that the problems may be due to nerve pain.
This is how you prevent teeth and icings in your teeth
You can prevent tooth decay and icing yourself.
- Brush your teeth regularly – twice a day. Then you keep your teeth free of coatings that can cause caries and inflammation of the gums.
- Brush your teeth correctly.
- For heavy sores – gently brush your teeth with a soft toothbrush rinsed in warm water.
- Use toothpaste for sensitive gums that contain, among other things, the substance potassium nitrate that protects against frostbite.
- Rinse with fluoride daily – this can reduce the hassle.
- To avoid corrosion to your teeth, wait at least an hour before brushing your teeth if you have been drinking or eating something acidic such as soft drinks, fruits and juices.
- If you experience problems with tooth pressing or gnashing – talk to the dentist about the bed rails.
- Visiting a dentist regularly – Regular visits to the dental office help to detect caries and other injuries early.
So you brush your teeth correctly
Brushing your teeth regularly, twice a day is enough.
So you brush your teeth properly
- Apply two inches of fluoride toothpaste on the toothbrush and brush for two minutes.
- Keep the toothbrush oblique and brush gently, “swinging” toward the gums with small grips.
- Remember not to rinse your mouth or drink anything after brushing your teeth. Then you rinse off the fluorine needed to protect your teeth.
- It should take about two minutes to brush through the entire mouth, think one minute for the upper jaw and one minute for the lower jaw.
If you brush hard with long movements back and forth you can damage the gums, the same thing can happen if you use a too heavy toothbrush. Choose a toothbrush that is soft and has a fairly small brush head. Soft to prevent damage to teeth and gums, and small to access everywhere. For some, even a small brush is too large to reach around the teeth at the back of the mouth, so you can try with a baby toothbrush.
An electric toothbrush with a small brush head is good as it accesses everywhere and can remove dirt even behind the last cheek. An electric toothbrush removes more plaque (bacterial coating) than a regular manual toothbrush. With a small brush head it is not so easy to fit with two centimeters of toothpaste, then you can first put on one centimeter of toothpaste, brush the upper jaw and then fill with another centimeter to the lower jaw. In order for the toothbrush to function as intended, it is important that it is fresh. It is the tops of the brush that clean, so change the toothbrush when the straws begin to bend, or at least every three months.
