Thanks for writing in.

I would like to ask you whether you have sensitivity in a single tooth or all teeth?
If its localized to 1 or 2 teeth then it might be a case of irreversible pulpitis that means tooth decay has progressed till pulp & it requires root canal treatment.

In case it is generalized & you experience sensitivity in all teeth then I would suggest that you use Sensodent-KF toothpaste twice a day & leave it on teeth for 5 minutes before rinsing with water.

If problem still persists then you may go for capping or veneering of teeth.

For getting proper treatment plan you need to go for complete dental check-up by your dentist.

Hope I answered your query.

Wishing you good health,

Take Care
