Sensitive or NOT!

Can teeth be sensitive to only sweet stuf? I get the most horrible aching pains when I eat sweets. Exspecially with soft sweets like jelly tots and caramel type of chocs. I do not eat sweets regularly but do enjoy the occasional sweetie. I've been to the dentist and he could not find any cavaties. It feels like it's getting worse, use to be only on the front side teeth but now it feels like it all the teeth except the two front ones. Please, Please help me. I've tried sensodyne for a while but did not note any difference. No problem with hot or cold foods. Thanks.

I have had a few patients with exactly the same symptoms as you describe. And all of them were found to have periodontitis (condition affecting the bone and supporting structures of the teeth). An xray will exclude this. Did you have an xray taken??

No xray taken. Please explain more about periodontitis and if a xray does show this to be the problem what is the way forward.
