chin and bottom front teeth in constant pain ??
I have been suffering with pain in my front bottom teeth and if I press on my chin bone under those teeth it makes the pain worse. I have seen a dentist and all he did was grind off some of my top teeth so that they wouldnt touch my bottom teeth. I explained that I wake up with headaches and I suspect its because I have been clenching my teeth thru the night. The pain and sensitivity has gotten bad enough in my bottom teeth that it hurts worse if air even touches them, let alone what its like when I accidently let my top teeth touch my bottom teeth. It all started almost a year ago. I woke up with a feeling in my front bottom teeth that they were being squeezed together, almost like they were overlapping one another. I pushed my fingernail between two of the teeth to relieve some of the pressure and I heard a crack. For days I waited for some kind of pain to start, assuming I had cracked the root or something. But for several weeks there was no change, except for the feeling of my teeth being squeezed together kept getting worse. After about a month of excruiciating pain I left work early to go to the dentist and all he did was grind off my teeth. I waited for several weeks for the pain to subside and eventually it did. But my teeth never felt 100% yet, and now the pain is returning. Does anyone have any suggestions??
