Constant Gum Pain

Posted by: lilysmommy  (8 years ago)
Dear all,

A part of the filling in between my canine tooth and first premolar on the right hand side came out and I had it replaced. After two weeks, I started to have gum pain behind my first premolar. The dentist who did the filling said I needed a root canal on my first premolar. Since I am afraid of root canals, I decided to go to another dentist to seek for any other possible ways to treat the pain. The new dentist said I had a gum inflammation. She put me on an oral rinse for two weeks but did this not help.

I went back to her after two weeks, she took X-Ray and found out the first dentist had overfilled the filling. She said I needed a root canal on the first premolar tooth because a nerve is being pressed. She then sent me to an endodontist. After the root canal, I continued to have gum soreness and pain on the tooth. The endodontist performed a a second root canal treatment, which again failed. I had an Apicoectomy done, which also failed.

After several visits to the dentist, trying to save the tooth, I finally had the tooth pulled. I thought this was the end of my horrible ordeal but I was wrong. I continued to have throbbing pain in my gums and a burning sensation in my mouth. I went to an oral surgeon who opened up the site and cleaned everything up. This had improved everything. After three months, I went back to the dentist to get a bridge put in. I just recently had the permanent put in and the horrible pain in my gum is back again. Does anyone know of any reason why my gums keep having this pain? I do not know what else to do. I hope to hear any answers or advice! Thanks a lot.

Hi there. When you look at the gum area that gives you trouble does it look pink and healthy? Ask your dentist or consult with an oro-facial pain expert and ask them to perform the following test which is to administer a somatic block and see if you get numb to find out whether the pain is localized or comes from the central nervous system. You might have a neuroma formed which a bundle of nerve fibers formed during healing after a trauma that are very hypersensitive and always send increased pain signals a fancy name is peripheral trigeminal neuropathy. if anesthesia works treatment is to - do a neurosensory splint - use 20% benzocaine, use capsisum (active substance of red hot chilli peppers- use 0.025%). Present this possibility to a professional and see how you respond to the anesthesia.
