b-12/sensitive teeth

I have recently been advised that I have a low b-12 count, and I have been grinding my teeth at night.  My teeth are very sensitive right now.  Are these things related, the b-12 count and the sensitive teeth?  My teeth feel COLD all the time, but they do not ache like a cavity or tooth ache.

I think the grinding is a possible cause for the sensitivity. I would consider seeing your dentist for a mouthguard to prevent any excessive wear on your teeth.

sounds like your problem may be due to grinding. let me tell you from a hardcore grinder, it can make your teeth sens. hurt and shift. talk to your dentist about this and if it is the problem a splint, or nightgaurd can help. bad thing is it is usually covered by medical ins, and hmo's dont cover it . but if you can get one it will save your teeth!
