  • If the pain is on both side at the same location most likely it is because of the gum problem. Some times pockets develops between the teeth and there is bone loss also. For this you have to get the deep scaling done or may be the flap surgery if the deep scaling is not treating the problem. For this you have to go to the gum specialist that is the periodontist. If possible do send me the X-rays. For more info on gum diseases you can visit the following link on our website......http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-gum-diseases-9.aspx
