Is anyone having back upper teeth pain?
My right side, back teeth (one is wisdom) have been hurting off and on, as if they have cavities almost. But then there are times they don't hurt at all. I can drink hot and cold on them and they are fine but every now and then I will just be sitting here and I get a sharp pain type ache in them- like it shoots up the roots. Or if I push my tongue hard on them, sometimes they hurt for a second. I have had these two teeth looked at several times over the past 3 years because of this type of pain. I am wondering now if it is due to TMJ? I know what sensitive teeth feel like, but this is more than just sensitive. My dentist told me a few weeks ago that I did have receding gums back there. But I don't think that would cause that type of pain. He was poking at my wisdom tooth a few weeks ago and he said he was wondering if it had a cavity but it didnt' feel soft to him so he disregarded it. At this point I could not open enough for an x ray to tell. He didn't seem concerned that it was a cavity. He just said receding gums are going on back there.
Anyways, just wondering if anyone else gets sharp pains or aches in their teeth off and on when they are dealing with TMJ pain.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
