Teeth bleaching done, chills, sore teeth. Causes and treatment?

i just recently got my teeth bleached and now they are some what sore like normal after bleaching, but the day after i kept getting this weird symptom.. when my hands would touch anything (mostly towel like fabric) i get a weird chill through out my body. Even if i see someone touching something like fabric i get the weird chills. Its the second day of it too (teeth are still sore) and it got worse, the chills are more extreme. What is this? I really need someones help.

Dentist 's  Response
hello and welcome to hcm forum,
first of all , i would like to inform you that bleaching of teeth has nothing to do with the chills but in order to confirm you need to visit a dentist who performed bleaching for you.
i do not know which bleaching agent was used and at what percentage , whether your gums and rest of the oral cavity were protected while the bleaching was performed.
all these factors are very important because if your soft tissue comes in contact with the bleaching agent you can have sores all over the tissue.
also, teeth become quite sensitive for a while after the bleaching procedure, may be that is the reason for the chills, therefore you should start using fluoridated tooth paste (twice/day), this will resolve your problem gradually.
i wish you good health.

Dentist, Prosthodontics Dr. Shivangi Gajwani Jain's  Response
What you have mentioned maybe your body's general response to cope up with the discomfort after bleaching. The sensations/ soreness stays for 24 to 48 hours after whitening, which is normal. If after 2 days it increases then please see your dentist to make sure that it isnt something else. I would recommend you to take any mild pain killer to relieve the discomfort and then the unwanted chills should also subside. Avoid extreme temperature foods ie: very cold or hot.
