Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this could be a cracked enamel. Look in the mirror and scope it out (not the mouthwash, the literal meaning of scope!) and see if you see any fine cracks in there. It allows temperature differences and air to get closer to your nerve endings.

It’s likely that you have gum recession which is one of the most common reasons for increased sensitivity but without seeing it I can’t tell you for sure. Sensodyne does take about 2 weeks to work so stick with it and make sure you are brushing gently and using a soft bristle brush so as not to make the recession worse. Here is a website article on gum recession http://www.webmd.com/oral-health/guide/receding_gums_causes-treatments

If the sensitivity continues you should go see your dentist, sometimes they can cover it with a simple filling and that will get rid of the sensitivity. Also if it’s something more serious you need to know before it gets worse.

Also if sensodyne doesn’t work try Pro Relief it’s a different active ingredient so it may work if sensodyne does not.

When you have a cavity or need a root canal, the pain can spread to the other teeth and make them sensitive.  I would see a dentist ASAP.  I’ve let many cavities go way too long and ended up with 5 root canals.

I have tooth sensitivity that is a result from brushing too often and too hard.  It has worn down the enamel on some of my teeth.  Some days are worse than others.  I started using Sensodyne and it has worked wonders.
