Tooth problems

Has anyone heard of fibromyalgia affecting the teeth? I have had a root canal and it redone with no relief. The Endonoist does not think it is a cracked tooth and asked if I had fibromyalgia. He said that he thought it could be what is causing the tooth to continue to hurt. I also have a burning and metalic sensation in my mouth.

Re: Tooth problems

l'm going through a lot of tooth pain right now due to TMJ. Do you have any ear or jaw pain with this? Soire neck, or headaches that appear to be sinus-related?

Re: Tooth problems

i went thru 17 root canals, some were repeats due to pain. later we figured out fibro was not helping the situation. that was after i had all my uppers out and got fakes.
peace,

Re: Tooth problems

P know I have lost about 4 teeth and I am undergoing Implants now.
I know when I go to the dentist I have an issue with numbing. For some reason I cant numb up or it lasts very briefly. I wonder if that has to do with the fibro.

Also another issue I have been noticing in my mouth. I get soar on the roof of my mouth. It is soar to the touch. I keep checking to see If there are any canker soars on it or blisters, but I dont see any. Does any one else get that?

Re: Tooth problems

I don't think it is TMJ. I started taking alpha lipoic acid and that seems to help with the burning in my mouth. I was told by a nurse that ALA helps a lot with burning mouth syndrome which could be what is causing the burning sensation. Not sure if Fibromyalgia could be contributing to that or not. I know that menopause, dental work and stress can.

Re: Tooth problems

yes my endo said fibromyalgia definitely can cause continuos tooth pain. His sister has it so he was very familiar with it. I had 2 root canals. One tooth kept hurting even afterwards so he kept the temporary on for additional time treating me weekly with antibiotics. He finally said he had to put the final crown on as I was having back surgery so he didnt want any bacteria to get in the tooth. I recently had another root canal done. A different endo couldn't find anything wrong with the tooth but I insisted it be done as I was tired of having the flair-ups and wondering if there was a hairline crack. Once in awhile I do get a pain but at least I know now it isn't the tooth.

Re: Tooth problems

I have tooth aches too that don't seem related to any tooth problem. I just went to my dentist recently for tooth problems and she didn't find anything. I find they hurt more when I have a flare. My dentist said that dry mouths will produce more problems with your teeth. I don't have much saliva due to meds. She gave me a tube of prescrition floride to put on each night. Your don't rinse it off.

Re: Tooth problems

Just a couple of things to keep in your mind as you pursue the truth:

- Sjogrens is a fairly common symptom amongst FMS patients. If you have dry eyes and dry mouth, ask your dentist about this problem. Sjogrens causes a lot of problems in the mouth.

- Last time I saw my dental hygenist, she commented about the chemical "sodium lauryl sulfate" which is causing problems in some people, including burning and cankers, amongst other symptoms. This agent causes the foaming action in toothpaste, and is in most commercial-type toothpastes. I use Andrea Rose toothpaste, which doesn't have this chemical.

Sometimes, these symptoms are like searching for a needle in a haystack! Keep going, turn over every rock until you have your answer.

Re: Tooth problems

I had a full body bone scan done recently, which showed that there are no areas in my body that are inflammed enough to cause the amount of pain I am encountering in my face and mouth. It is caused by fibro; the pain is in the muscles, nowhere else. I feel as if my right cheek bone is fractured and my right lower jaw feels as if I'd just had surgery to extract at least two teeth. All of my lower gums feel tender to the touch. So, yes, tooth problems aren't really tooth problems. Don't waste your money on dentists unless you have good dental insurance. Even then, don't trust your instincts; because they're probably wrong. Fibromyalgia has its own rules, its own timetable, its own outcome.
