Hay Tee,

Sudden Change of temprature is not good for any of the things. Not for 
teeth, not for body. There should be no SUDDEN change in temprature. and 
one should always try to avoid that. 

For Example:- take a piece of glass place it in freezer for some time, 
take it out and place it directly on fire. It will be cracked. 

That is an example of sudden change in temprature, and this will not 
happen to your teeth, just because you will not be able to take extreme 
hot or cold things in your oral cavity, reason is human responces. So that 
thing dont effect that badly, but it do effect on teeth aswell.

Thanking you

Dr. Shoaib
