pain from cold drinks

Occasionally in the past I have had pain near the back lower left side of jaw/teeth/gums when drinking cold liquids. This pain would only last a short duration while drinking the cold liquid especially if allowing the liquid between cheek and gum. Pain would disappear completely in a few days.
This weekend I had a recurrance of the pain but it was much more severe and the area would have a dull ache for hours after the "trigger" event. The pain/ache would sometimes return even if no add'l food or drink was consumed.
In the past I also noticed occcasional mild pain when chewing rubbery like foods that weren't too hard or soft but had a little "give" to them (like clams in clam chowder)
Now it seems that every cold drink triggers hours-long pain and ache. I see no obvious cracks or cavities and have had very few cavaties at all (fluride treatments worked well?).
What would be the usual causes for this kind of pain from cold only ????

Re: pain from cold drinks

the pulp (core of the tooth) can get damaged even if there is no obvious decay or crack on your tooth.

if the root surface is exposed due to recession of gum, this will be more likely.

at any rate, you need root canal treatment.
