| | Teeth hurting - Dentist said "no reason why"...anyone have any information?
I'll soon be 50 years old. I have a bottom partial that latches onto my back molars and I have 6 bottom teeth in front.
For the past 2 weeks my teeth have been aching. I went to see my dentist last week, when one of my front teeth continued to hurt, I was scared it was cracked.
He did a complete exam, and 2 x-rays and there were no chips, cracks, cavities, decay or bone loss.
There's no reason I should be having a tooth ache and my dentist felt certain that the pain was not from my partial. (I've had it for about 5 years)
A few days later, ALL 6 of my front teeth started hurting as well as my 2 back molars.
Eating / drinking something sweet, cold or hot...or when I brush my teeth, I do not feel any increased pain or sensitivity.
But when the do hurt, during the day, it is a dull ache, vairies at times to a few sharp pains, not in the gums, but the teeth. On a scale from 1 - 10 (with 10 being the worse) it is about a 2.
It's odd that when I eat, drink and brush my teeth they do not hurt at all and the dentist states "your teeth look great, no flaws or reasons for pain"
Anyone with advice, please post a reply. It's really starting to be annoying and I don't know what to do since the Dentist finds no problems.
