In brief: Exam and treat
The dentist will do a thorough exam to determine the source of your tooth sensitivity.
It could be due to dental decay (aka caries, cavities) or demineralization of the enamel. If so, the dentist will formulate a treatment plan to treat your problems. A prescription Fluoride toothpaste or otc toothpaste such as sensodyne might help.
