In the News: Why Your Tooth Might Hurt When You Exercise

Dr. Umang Patel

Dr. Umang Patel was recently featured in a Livestrong.com article by Sara Lindberg, “Why Your Tooth Might Hurt When You Exercise.”

In this article that explains the common culprits for tooth pain during exercise — and how to relieve that pain — Dr. Patel contributes his expertise and provides a few reasons to Livestrong.com readers.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Pain while running could also be the onset of periodontal disease (gum disease), which you could be at greater risk for if you have diabetes, a weak immune system, poor dental hygiene, certain genes or you smoke, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “When you run, it increases your blood pressure, and that increase in blood flow can put pressure on your gums,” Dr. Patel adds.

Check out the full article for more advice from Dr. Patel.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
