In brief: Talk to DDS
Often can get topical anesthetic (not injection).
Of course tooth sensitivity may be a sign of dental or gum disease.

In brief: MI Pate/N2O
In my office we have found a combo that is very effective.
We apply mi paste to the roots for 5 min and administer nitrous oxide during the cleaning.
