Brief Answer: Use desensitizing paste & get RCT of decayed tooth Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing in. Firstly I would like to tell you that sensitivity in teeth can be due to two reasons:- -due to wearing away of enamel layer of teeth & it can be cured by using desensitizing tooth paste. - due to decayed tooth & in this you need to go for filling or Root Canal Treatment followed by capping, whatsoever is required. You need to visit a dentist & get proper examination done. Your treatment plan will depend on diagnosis. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Hope I answered your query. Wishing you good health.
