Anyone know why my upper jaw and teeth would hurt/ache after riding? Seems to have started now that the weather is cold. I know this didn't happen last year when it was much colder than now. My Dentist can't see anything in the x-rays that would cause it. It lasts for around an hour after I stop excersizing. Anyone have any ideas?

I had a similiar problem a few years ago. It was an older filling that caused the tooth to need a root canal. Then the problem cleared up. I rode with a balaclava over my mouth in cold weather to help. This worked very well for me. Hope you do not have the same problem. It could also be due to enamel wearing away as you age. You might try a sensitivity reduction toothpaste just prior to riding in cold weather. I have used it since the above incident. Sensodyne is the most expensive and Aquafresh Sensitive works just as well and a lot cheaper at Walmart. Good luck.

It could be that you are clinching/grinding your teeth while you are riding in the cold. You may not even realize you're doing it. It happens. Try to be aware of it next time to see if you're doing it.
The cold air may be affecting your sinuses. Same things happens to me when it's really cold.
