Sensitivity: You may have sensitivity of your teeth from the cleaning or the bite adjustments. Your issues may have begun as you needed a bite adjustment. It would be best to talk to your Dentist that did the work as to why you had it done and how it may be continuing to bother you.

Occlusal eval: Sounds like an occlusion problem. See Orthodontic Specialist for evaluation, possible occlusal orthotic, possible occlusion management.
