Sensitive tooth

Hi,

I had my tooth extracted in october 2008 and another teeth filled up for cavity.. After that I started to have sensitive tooth and that sensitiveness spreads to the body. When I feel that tooth sensitivity my whole body also feels sensitive and it takes a few minutes for my body to get adjusted to that sensitivity.. sometimes when i think about the feeling i feel sensivite. Now it is becoming a everyday problem. But no pain in the teeth.. will this sensitiveness go away.. My dentist says just use sensodyne but its of no use.. Please help me with this..

I would've recommended the sensodyne tooth paste as well for the sensitivity.  You can call your dentist and ask for a prescription of Prevident toothpaste, which is a high content fluoride toothpaste that may help and go on a fluoride rinse as well.  

I haven't heard of clothing affected the sensitivity of teeth before.  Is it possible that you've been conditioned to get a sensation of sensitivity when seeing or wearing that particular material?

The sensitivity occurs when I see or wear clothes (which are not cotton). This feeling comes even if someone wears clothes made out of polyesters.. Also even if I remember the feeling i get sensitivity.. And I also notice My front teeth is becoming transparent . Is it because of the enamel getting lost. I notice the transparency just recently after I started to have sensitivity.
No dental insurance for now as it got expired and cannot get it immediately. so can't go to the Dentist for another few months..Is there anything I can get from over-the-counter.
Any suggestion appreciated.
Thanks

The sensitivity of the tooth has been constant since Oct 2008?

At that point, I would recommend seeking another opinion on the matter.  When does the sensitivity occur?  It may be galvanic shock, which is when two metal surfaces hit in the mouth and causes a little electrical shock.  If your filling is white though, it won't do that.  If you are still experiencing problems, I would recommend replacing the filling.
