four months ago I had a deep scaling on all four quadrants. One quadrant kept giving me a lot of pain and finally after months the pain stopped. Several weeks ago the pain started up again and I saw my dentist. He said I had intraoral herpes and it should go away in two weeks. The pain in my gums and all my face continues on the one side where there is an exposed tooth that had been under a crown. The dentist says it isn't that tooth because it's sufficiently still covered by the old filling.
I'm in pain constantly and when he diagnosed this two weeks ago he said if the face pain doesn't go away see my doctor. Well I know he is thinking about trigeminal neuralgia but my gums still hurt so how can my regular help? Any input would be appreciated.
