Hi, ive recently developed a sensitivity to extreme heat or cold in one of my teeth. I only notice it when drinking ice cold water or hot tea. Im worried that itll develop and become alot more sensitive to more mild temperatures. It started happening after i wasn't able to brush my teeth for 5 days after i was snowed in without a toothbrush :/
The tooth doesn't have any noticeable damage done to it, and doesn't hurt to poke with my finger. It doesn't feel unusual or different in anyway and i don't have a problem with my gums. A dentist appointment will cost me 40 quid and probably a two month wait. Anyone know what the problem could be and how i should be able to keep it in the best shape until i can see a dentist?

Might be a tiny tiny hole that will get worse until you need a filling, or it could be nothing - I don't claim to be a dentist by any means.
In the mean time get some of that sensitive teeth toothpaste. I've always had sensitive teeth and it helps a lot
