There are multiple factors that can contribute to tooth sensitivity. Some people just have more sensitive teeth than others and have to be careful what they eat, avoiding those foods that cause sensitivity. Some people have tooth sensitivity because of cavities; usually this leads to sensitivity to sweets and temperatures. Many people have sensitive root surfaces because of receding gums that expose the dentin of the root surface (generally sensitive for most people). There are other factors that could contribute to tooth sensitivity. If the cause can be identified there are procedures that can help or at least improve the sensitivity (cavities=fillings, receding gums=gum procedure).

It is difficult to say exactly what the problem is without physically taking a look at your teeth.

Hope that helps a little!
