I have experienced teeth sensitivity whenever I eat grapes. Lately, I’ve noticed the same when I eat Sherbet. What could be a possible cause?

When your teeth are sensitive to sweets, that tends to indicate a leaky filling. What happens is that, when a filling gets old, they can develop a little gap between the filling and the tooth. With amalgam fillings, this gap may be particularly hard to spot because of their natural corrosion that looks normal. Or, the filling could crack. All that’s needed is for the filling to be replaced. And it’s good not to put this off, because the leaky filling leads to tooth decay under and around the old filling, and that decay can get deep quickly.
