What can I do for cold sensitivity after tooth extraction?

Dr. Meng Syn Dr. Syn
2 doctors agreed:

Avoid Cold: Not forever. Most of the time, cold sensitivity after extraction is from the adjacent tooth. When a tooth looses the insulation that the adjacent tooth provides, the exposed root surface and tooth surface can sometimes be sensative to cold. Usually this is temporary however if a large defect exists at the extraction site, dental intervention may be necessary. Try sensodyne toothpaste 2 weeks. ...Read more

How long should cold sensitivity last after a tooth filling is done?

Depends on Why: Ideally, you will have no sensitivity after a filling. However, there are may times when sensitivity does develop. It can be from several different things, so it's hard to say how long it will last. If it's slowly getting better, then just keep waiting to see if it eventually heals. If it doesn't improve, then more treatment will be needed. In most cases, a few weeks will take care of it. ...Read more

Why do I have hot and cold sensitivity where I had a wisdom tooth extracted?

That's Unusual: If you have temp. Sensitivity around an extraction site, it's most likely the next tooth over. It's unlikely that your sensitivity is coming from the extraction area itself. Generally, this is caused by a little bit of gum recession on the neighboring tooth during the healing from the extraction. This exposes part of the next tooth's root, which can be sensitive. It's generally easy to fix. ...Read more
