Pain in the back of my mouth

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Vifort  (8 years ago)
Two weeks ago, I developed pain in the back of my mouth. My second molar on the upper left side was sensitive to anything hot. I thought I have an abscess so I took antibiotics for a week but the pain did not go away. I also noticed that a protrusion began forming on the inside of my gum where my wisdom tooth used to be. All my wisdom teeth were removed several years ago. The pain was so intense and had spread to my jaw line. I also get shooting pain behind my eyes and I get constant headache. Any ideas what the pain is all about? Thank you.

Do not initiate antibiotic treatment on your own. As a layman, you don't know when it is appropriate. It masks symptoms and makes diagnosis more difficult

Have an x-ray taken, to see what is the origin. Probably you have a non-vital second molar. If so, have a root canal started as quickly as possible.

It appears that the inside of your upper molar tooth (pulp) is inflammed (pulpitis), causing the sensitivity to hot you are experiencing. The protrusion could be a gum boil that is discharging pus, indicating the inside of the tooth is infected too. A root canal treatment is probably required. More information in www.rootsendo.sg.

Hi..

You have a gum infection somewhere on that side of your mouth. These also can start in between the teeth.
Thanks.
