Since ice cream does contain a high sugar content, it is important to practice good oral health habits. Some individuals may experience tooth sensitivity when consuming cold foods such as ice cream. Tooth sensitivity results when dentin, the surface under your gums, becomes exposed. This can lead to nerve irritation when consuming hot or cold beverages or foods, or simply exposing your teeth to the cool air. If you experience tooth sensitivity, visit your dentist as soon as possible.
