Can your teeth feel the weather? That may sound silly, but if you’ve experienced it, you understand what I mean.

How are weather and dental health connected? Well, let’s dive in.

Why Your Teeth ‘Feel’ the Weather

Sensitive teeth can be caused by a few different things. Tiny fractures/cracks, cavities, weak enamel, gum problems, or issues with old fillings/crowns can all cause teeth sensitivity.

As things heat up outdoors, make sure you’re staying on top of your oral health.

Tips for Keeping Your Teeth Healthy All Season Long

A toothpaste and mouthwash with fluoride in it is helpful for oral pain relief.

Make sure you’re getting enough nutrients in your diet so that your teeth remain strong. Foods and drinks that are good for your teeth include green tea, dairy products, fruits, veggies and fluoride water.

Also be sure to schedule regular dentist appointments. Have you made your next appointment yet?
