Nerve Pain

User Level:
Posted by: scartissue  (10 years ago)

I have been having pain and sensitivity in my bottom left second molar for a couple years now. It all started when I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed. Whenever I chew food on that tooth, it would give me a zinging shock sensation through my cheek. The pain becomes intense if I brush and floss it. It does not hurt when I touch it with my tongue or finger though. I was thinking that there might be an exposed nerve that only small objects like bristles and food can reach.

I have been to several dentists but none of them was able to discover the source of the pain. Lately, I noticed that the pain has spread to the adjacent tooth. Anyone who could offer me some information or advice about this problem? It’s been two years and I am already tired of it. I would be forever grateful for any help.

Try looking for a oro-facial specialist or a dentist specializing in oro-facial pain. It may be that you have developed a neuroma post trauma. Neuroma is a unorganized bundle of nerve tissue that is hypersensitive and fires pain impulses on mild stimuli.
They will use anesthesia to see if ti helps. If anesthesia works then it is a local problem and can be treated with some medications.
