Nina says: Sensitivity should be short-lived and subside within a few days. I checked with New York City dentist Brian Kantor, D. D. S., for ways to soothe pain in the meantime. He recommends using a desensitizing toothpaste like Sensodyne or taking an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve).
