Question: Hi doctor, am having this sharp and shocking tooth pain whenever I drink cold water, what is the cause? Do I need to visit a dentist.
Transient tooth pain characterized by short, sharp pain in response to a stimulus (hot, cold) that cannot be attributed to any other dental defect is called dentin hypersensitivity. In this case inner tooth tissue is exposed to the oral cavity and some nerves stimulation cause the pain. Some of your daily oral routine if carried out improperly could be the cause of the exposure.
