Re: Dental Pain, Receding Gums & Mobile Teeth - The Complete Package
I am sorry for all the issues you are having. I am 28 years old and have always have good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day, floss and rinse. When I got pregnant last year, it wasn't a normal pregnancy. Instead of me having morning sickness just the first few months. I was getting sick 18-22 times a day for the last 7 months. I finally had to get a medication to help. Because of me getting sick so many times, it cause a lot of dental issues. (For some reason my local dentist didn't pick up on any of the issues I am having.) I travel 4 hours to go to a dental clinic once a month. When I first started going I was asked if I grind my teeth. (Never aware of this) Also I was told that because of my braces that I had when I was in high school, I now have a few teeth that have root absorption. (Basically the root is disappearing.) And also my bite has moved. Now I find myself where I am today. The dentist that I see in Ohio (4 hours away) has done a full mouth deep cleaning, a full occlusal adjustment and is going to be making a night guard on my visit. The day that the occlusal adjustment was done everything felt great but the next morning, I was in so much pain. I now feel like I have several teeth that are loose. My teeth aren't hot or cold sensitive but for some strange reason when I go to brush my teeth, as soon as I put the tooth paste on my teeth there is a sharp pain. I go back to Ohio on the 1st August. I am going to add my new problems to the list that I have already mentioned to my dentist.
I am honestly getting really tired of the pain and the worry. I am to the point that I am thinking about just taking them out and getting dentures or a partial. I know I won't go to that extreme but I just want one day where there is no pain.
