Suddenly hot foods cause tooth pain. That pain can be dealt with by doing something rare. Drinking very cold liquids. We always thought sensitivity was both hot and cold. What is the cause if you have had similar experiences?

I do know that if cold hurts a tooth than it's likely a root problem. Not sure what being sensitive to hot food means. Interesting that cold makes it feel better.

Have you had any recent dental work that could be bothering you?

Reaction to hot foods has subsided. Cold caused pain one time. Since then no pain hot or cold.
A dentist told us a simple way to check for possible issues. Take a pair of tweezers or other metal item and lightly tap the tooth (teeth). If one is more sensitive to the tap, then that tooth may be causing the issues.

One time had a dentist do that test with an ice cube. Ouch! We had no doubt which tooth needed a root canal. LOL
