    When sweets hurt (i.e. chocolates) it's a sign of a cavity that just got through the enamel and just hit dentin.....if a cavity gets deeper...ironically it doesn't hurt as much....until it hits the pulp..then you're in trouble....

    I've heard that the dali lama eats sugar. I also eat sugar. I figure that on my deathbed I will achieve total consciousness. So I have that going for me, which is nice.

    That sounds like what happens to me everytime before I get diagnosed with yet another cavity...

    I am assuming your cavity will first be addressed. If the sensitivity persists, try that sensodyne toothpaste to see if that helps. If it doesn't, though I am not yet a dentist, I think you are looking at a root canal in your future.

    sensodyne will take care of temperature sensitivity (ie cold due to gum recession)....but sensitivity to sweets is a definite sign of a cavity...although not deep enough to be a root canal.....but nonetheless a filling....

    don't worry, I've already had 3(4?) root canals. My teeth are made of marshmallows.

    Come on, folks. Wait till you finish dental school to start giving out free professional advice, and even then, don't do it until you've at least seen the patient. ;)
