Sudden Sensative Teeth

I am a 50 year young female. I have never had any teeth issues. A few weeks ago all of my teeth became super sensative to cold. It's really strange. I am trying special tooth paste but wonder if there could be an underlying reason for the sudden change?

Hi Mary,

Did the sensitivity begin after you began using the special tooth paste? What kind of toothpaste is it (I don't mean the brand name but what is it supposed to do for you/why are you trying it?).

Dear MaryBWaddell:
Yes, the tooth paste could be the culprit. However, without examining you, it is difficult to make any conclusions.
I do recommend that you talk to your dentist, who can physically examine you.
Best of luck,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
