In brief: Hypersensitivity

This increased sensation to hot and cold is due to loss of support tooth tissue exposing some ot root surface.
Root surfaces have pain fibers closer to the surface. What you can do is use sensidyne (sp) toothpaste and over time your senstivity will decrease.

In brief: Gum recession

Along with gum recession comes the exposure of the roots of the teeth, and since they are not protected by the thermal barrier of enamel, they tend to be more sensitive to stimuli such as hot, cold, sweets, etc.
Have a discussion with your own dentist regarding both the prevention of gum recession as well as reparative and palliative treatment.
