Cavity or sensitive tooth?

User Level:
Posted by: blackhawk  (9 years ago)
Dear everyone,

I have never had any cavities before but I have a tooth now which is really bothered by hot and cold. I have been to the dentist last week for my regular visit but she didn't see anything. I brush and floss regularly. I don't see any hole and it doesn't hurt to eat sweet or anything in particular. Is this a cavity or could this just be a sensetive tooth? Please advise! I don't want to wait 'til it gets worse. Thanks!

Dear Blackhawk, your dentist did not see any caries both visually and on radiographs right? Also since you never had cavities before it is very unlikely that you will develop them unless your lifestyle is going through changes such as a new medicine or diet? Make sure to use fluoride containing tooth paste and mouth rinses you can also have your dentist apply sealant on that tooth. You can also try sensodyne toothpaste to help with the sensitivity.
