My bottom teeth have always gone over my top teeth. Can I ever wear dentures with this problem?

  • It's likely flossing makes it feel better because you've decided it helps, not because it necessarily does. Mind over matter and all that. Your teeth hurt because without the wisdom teeth holding them in place, they're shifting just slightly. It's not even enough to be visibly seen. In a few more days the pain will subside, just keep doing what you're doing until then.

  • My wisdom teeth has been taken out, pain is manaegable till i take my, it's not the area around the extractions that have necessarily hurt. It has actually been like a tenderness on the bottom, back teeth. This radiates on my whole bottom part of my mouth. The only thing that relieves this pain is to floss thoroughly throughout my whole mouth. I'm very careful not to hurt the very back of my mouth, but if I floss between my teeth when I get the very tender, radiating pain... then the pain becomes manageable.The pain became so bad tonight, so I took two percocet, and three hours later, I took four ibuprofen.But still it did not go away. But when I do flossing my pain goes away. How is it possible by flossing ? I don't understand why this is happening. I haven't eaten anything bad for my teeth. I only had some pudding and some cream of wheat today. Why would my bottom back teeth become so sore, that nothing, not even two percocet's and four ibuprofen can relieve.. only FLOSSING? Is this normal? Do I make sense? It's like a tender, pulsating pain that is relieved by flossing.

  • Yes you can wear dentures but for that you have to go to the specialist who will manipulate the bite in such a way that either the teeth are end to end or they are in normal occlusion. For more info n dentures you can visit the following
