Have extracted tooth 2 years ago and been having this gum and tooth pain very frequent lately.. Been through seeing dental specialist and all giving different answers and opinion.. Some event said that is signess, some said have to leave with it.. Doctor gave pain killers and antibiotics but it's still doesn't help.. The pain is killing Me, I m unable to speak properly and eat my meals regularly too.. Most of the dentist has already done Xray and said nothing they can do.. The only time I m relaxed is when I m lying down but the moment getting up, the pain is back again and it's has been lasted for 2 weeks or so... Plse help and advise what should I do?

  • Sometimes crack tooth also behaves like this and it is very difficult to diagnose a cracked tooth. If you had gone for Root Canal Treatment and got crowns also and if crowns are high and occlusion is not adjusted properly even then problem of tooth pain is there. But as you have already consulted so many specialists, they must have considered these things also.

  • I have had horrible tooth pain in the teeth on the upper left side of my mouth for nearly 5 years. I have no infections, no sinus problems, none of the teeth are broken, all of the fillings are tight, and there is no gum irritation at all. I can't chew on the left side due to severe pain from pressure. It is not hot or cold sensitive. I've even had root canals in two of the teeth, and while that did lessen the pain, it did not get rid of it. I've seen endodontists and dentists, and none of them have any idea what the problem is. Obviously, it's a problem with the nerves on that side of the upper jaw, but no one knows why. I was told that heart problems can cause this, so I was referred to a cardiologist. I have a very healthy heart. Unfortunately, no one has been able to figure out what is wrong. At this point, I am considering having all the teeth on the upper left side removed. I hope you don't have to do this, but don't count on getting any help from anyone. No one really knows what causes this, so don't let them lie to you. I spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to figure out what is wrong, and frankly, I got ripped off. If you see more than three doctors and they can't tell you what is wrong, just rip the teeth out and move on. Don't pay them any more money. They don't know what's wrong.

  • The pain in the gums and teeth can be because of various reasons. It can be the infection in the gums or the sinuses. It does not look like the tooth infection as in that case the pain increases on lying down. But sinus pain is relieved . So the pain can be because of the infection in sinuses but it is difficult to comment with out seeing the case clinically . You should get the X-ray's done to find out the cause of the pain.
