Hi. .If the sensitivity persists after the use of a desensiting paste for one month then you need to get it checked with X ray investigation. . It could probably due to deep caries or cavity ..
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
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 â 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.

sensitivity is multifactorial in nature, lot many teeth conditions or gum conditions can cause, please visit dentist, get examined and ruled out, all that can cause sensitivity, if any exisits ur dentist will treat then sensitivity will decrease, only tooth pastes and mouth wash could be very little help
You can start with sensitivity paste. If it does not subside in 2 weeks then you need to see dentist in person
