Front teeth pressure

Hello to all. A little over three months ago, I noticed what felt like a swollen vein just behind a front tooth .... it felt tender and like there was pressure on my tooth. After trying several methods to fix what was wrong, I gave in and went to the dentist. The dentist told me I needed a good cleaning. A month later, I went to my appointment, was given a panoramic x-ray and a deep cleaning. The dentist told me I needed to have one back tooth extracted, but everything else looked good. I had to see a second dentist to get the tooth pulled and asked him what is wrong with my front teeth/gums. He told me (after looking at my x-rays and examining my gums) my front gums look irritated. Okay .... SO, I go back to the first dentist and ask her what's going on with my teeth and why am I still dealing with discomfort and swollen gums. She did another examination and concluded again that there is nothing wrong. I asked every question I could think of ....... Sinus infection? Gum disease? Grinding my teeth? Cavities? etc. She told me it was nothing and I should be happy. I'm NOT crazy! The front gums are still swollen and I feel pressure on my front teeth. I have noticed the feeling of plugged/pressure in my ears when the teeth feel their most uncomfortable. My nose hasn't been stuffed up though. What could be going on? How can I fix what's wrong? Should I see a regular doctor? Please help. Thank you.
