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.

Friendly staff, always take the time to discuss how you are doing, and what needs to be done. I've been a patient for 10+ years, and even though I moved out of town, I always come back for my dental needs.
