    I've had sensitive teeth for as long as I can remember.  I eat ice cream a certain way so that it does not hurt as much.  I am also careful when I drink really cold stuff too or go from cold to hot.  I think they are getting worse though because it hurt when I bit...

    When Cold

    My teeth only get sensitive when they are cold, for example when I eat ice cream or drink ice water. It actually hurts so much that I prefer to let my drinks cold foods get slightly warm before drinking/eating them. I'm also -not- sensitive to hard hits, like from a kid's head...

    I can feel the plaque that grows overnight and I have no choice but to brush my teeth.  I promise you, I have not missed a day of my life without brushing.  Another thing, I have to use straws because cold ice causes intense pain.  I can't take it.
