If it's happening since last five days in all the tooth then don't worry its normal due to cold environment sensitivity of tooth increases. If it's happening since long and in particular teeths then you have to visit your dentist most commonly with age tooth gets wear off due to which sensitivity causes. Or else in case of dental caries you can feel sensitivity, clinical examination will rule out the reason definitely

The most probable cause of your sensitivity is cavity in your lower back teeth. Though it might also be erosion, abrasion and/or attrition, gum recession, crazing… For temporary relief, you can apply any de-sensitising toothpaste (apply on the affected tooth and leave it for 15-20 minutes) and rinse after. Keep in mind, this is only for temporary relief. Visit your dentist ASAP to avoid further damage to your teeth.

It can be due to multiple reasons. Might be due to deposits on the tooth that led to gum infection. Or maybe due to decay in the tooth. Please visit the nearby dentist to get a full mouth examination done and a proper diagnosis. Until you do that, please use a chlorhexidine mouthwash (Clohex ADS) twice daily for 1-2 weeks.

I would suggest you to visit a dentist to find out the cause of sensitivity. If you have any details like xrays or consultation doccuments please brief here, so that we can guide in a proper way. Without finding the cause of sensitivity you will not get the permanent relief from it for which you are looking.

Could be for a variety of reasons for instance calculus, cavity, rough toothbrushing leading to cervical abrasion, abfraction etc. you need to first find our the cause. Get a consultancy done to find out what treatment would be the best. Until the desensitising toothpaste could help.

Hi Given the sensitivity is persistent, it's time to seek dental care. Lasting sensitivity, specially when u are able to point out the origin means there is something' happening ( could be decay/gum problem/ tooth substance loss) there. Time to intervene and set it right. Good luck

Sensitivity is what happens when there are very fine openings in tooth structure causing nerve stimulation while eating hot and cold. To correct it kindly visit a specialist who will analyse your cause of problem and advise accordingly.

There is chance of attrition or abrasion on your teeth and due to which your tooth enamel is compromised. For a temporary relief, use a. Desensitising tooth paste and visit a near by dentist for a full check up regarding the issue.
