If the sensitivity is due to a cavity, a restoration can be placed. If gum disease is the cause, the dental professional can perform a thorough cleaning of the area. However, if the cause is from dentin being exposed, then there are a number of professional and at home treatments that can be used to reduce the sensitivity. In Office Procedures: Fluoride varnish can be applied to exposed areas, strengthening the enamel and dentin Fluoride foam or gel can be placed into a mouth tray; you then sit with this in your mouth for 3-5 minutes, providing the teeth with a high concentration of fluoride to strengthen the areas Bonding agent, the material used to stick tooth colored restorations to teeth, can be used to seal the dentin surface and provide a barrier to the stimuli that cause sensitivity At Home: Use a very soft bristle tooth brush, with low abrasive tooth paste Brush correctly and do not over brush Use a tooth paste specially formulated to soothe the nerve endings in the tooth Use a high concentration fluoride toothpaste (given to you by the dental professional) to strengthen the tooth surface There are a number of treatments available, and your dental professional can help you find those that will work best, depending on your situation. Always seek a dental professional's help – do not try to diagnose this problem yourself. It may be the sign of something more serious, and only a dental professional can tell you what it really is.

Thermal sensitivity is the first sign of a diseased tooth which is usually due to open dentinal tubules (small tubes extending from the 'alive' part of tooth to outer covering, 'Enamel'), it so happens by many reasons outer covering is lost and tubes are open to surroundings leading to sensitivity, The treatment is simply by closing the tubes... Which can be done by various alternatives ranging from advising use of 'specific' Toothpastes to appropriate Fillings by the dentist.
Next Steps
Can start using SHY-OR® for not more than 2 weeks.And visit a nearby Dentist.
