WHAT IS BARODONTALGIA?
What is Dr. Amy and Dr. G Heath's favorite winter activity??? You guessed it SKIING! The whole Copeland family is now on skis-even their 4 year old daughter Channing. Something they have learned about at high altitude is barodontalgia-tooth pain caused by a change in atmospheric pressure. Scuba divers and pilots are know to have problems with this and so are adventurists in the high altitude Rocky Mountains. The most common sources of this type of tooth pain are dental cavities, defective fillings, gum disease and tooth nerve issues. The Copelands have joined forces with Peakescape and offer free telephone consultations for mountain dental emergencies.
