your teeth have become sensitive to hot/cold food-stuff and water. Sensitivity may occur due to a variety of causes, the most common being:
1. Brushing your teeth too hard
2. Gum diseases
3. Dental cavity
if you are applying too much pressure while brushing, it is likely to lead to a condition called as attrition, wherein the the outermost tough layer of the teeth (enamel) begins to wear, exposing the underlying structures that are more sensitive to cold stuff. If that is the case, you need to use a soft brush and put minimal pressure on your teeth while brushing. Also, you must switch to an anti-sensitivity toothpaste which will help reduce your problem to a considerable extent.
In case you have an inadequately maintained oral hygiene, is likely that you may have developed a gum problem, which is manifesting as sensitivity. For that, you would be required to get a thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist. It will solve your problem.
Besides the above, dental cavities also cause abnormal sensations to cold water. You will have to get it checked from a dentist, and if such a cavity is present, it may require a filling. Send you an appropriate prescription.
Hope that helps.
Get a detailed dental check up done, if xray is needed then get it done. You can use dental toothpastes like (sensodent- k from indoco, vantej from Dr. Reddy's) for now to control the sensitivity. But, still a dental xray is a must to determine whether you are having dental caries which are deep and close to the dental pulp. If it is so, then root canal treatment is needed followed by dental crown.
This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelf or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto your tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get your teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of your problem n get treated accordingly. Regsrds.
