Healthy living: Tooth sensitivity
Fran Gensicki has suffered with painful tooth sensitivity since high school when her braces came off. "Cold air in the winter. If I walk in the morning and breathing in hurts. Cold water," said Gensicki. Pain can sometimes be from sweets even warm fluids. When the gums recede, often the root of the tooth is exposed causing pain. Grinding your teeth can contribute to the problem as well as a cracked or decayed tooth, acidic foods don't help. Gensicki said, "Anything that has a lot of acids in it. Some juices, soda's citrus products, orange juice, grapefruit juice a big one." Brushing your teeth to hard will affect the gums.
