Hello & welcome,
Having sensitivity in teeth by the use of cold or any kind of hot drink is indication either of attrition ( wear & tear ) of teeth or by the way of decaying of the teeth.
In both the cases you will get sensitivity to cold or hot drinks, but definitely treatment will slightly differ depending on severity.
Fist visit your dentist to get diagnosis between the above two condition which can easily be done by your dentist through clinical examination. Requirement of x-ray will be depending upon findings of clinical examination by your dentist.
If there is attrition without exposing of live pulp tissue of the teeth , you will have to use anti hypersensitivity tooth paste for long term & controlled release painkiller taken once a day for short period.
Your brushing technique has major impact compared to frequency of brushing.

* Avoid Horizontal & forceful brushing which in turn causes wearing of the outer enamel layer of the teeth.

* Avoid Drinking chilled stuff immediately after hot one & vice versa.

* Put light but constant pressure while brushing & up down movements repeated with brush held horizontally.
Maintaining oral hygiene will also keep caries away.
If there is any carious teeth in your oral cavity, they will be treated with cement or silver filling.

Take care.

hi, you are suffering from tooth sensitivity you need to use a good desensitizing paste like sensodyne, apply it on the teeth with finger and leave for 10 minutes then brush normally. Use a fluoride containing mouthwash twice daily, you will get relief within 2 weeks.
take care

hello and welcome,
the tooth sensitivity may be due to several reasons-
regressive alterations of teeth like attrition,abrasion,erosion.-in such cases toothcoloured restorations can be given.avoid intake of citrus fruits and beverages like cola etc.
dental carries-this can cause dry mouth.get the decayed tooth restored/rct/pulp capping depending on the progression of decay.
i would advice you to use soft bristled toothbrush to clean your teeth without applying vigorous pressure.
always brush you teeth from top to bottom,avoid horizontal direction.
use gum tone gel to massage your gums.
use desensitising toothpaste like sensodent.

Thanks for writing to us.
For tooth sensitivity, an injury to teeth or gums or an infection in the oral cavity needs to be ruled out after a detailed examination. Please consult your dentist for appropriate approach to treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
