Tooth sensitive to cold, sweets, pressure. Is that a cavity?

Very likely. Those symptoms are in fact characteristic of a advanced decay resulting in inflammation of the central tissue of the tooth from bacterial invasion to the tubules ahead of the open cavity. The pressure sensitivity when biting suggest that central tissue inflammation has spread to the ligament that holds the tooth in the bone. Please see a dentist quickly and get a pulp vitality test and x-ray. Read more...

Can be. If the filling was deep, this can be normal. Cold is so much colder than mouth temperature that it is usually the one that we feel. 'hot' is less of a change from our mouth temperature, so we usually don't notice it. If the sensitivity does not improve/go away in a few days, then call your dentist. There may be other problems. Often the bite needs to be adlusted to get you comfortable. Good luck. Read more...
