Pain in upper teeth

User Level:

Posted by: jojo76  (5 years ago)
Hi there. I had a filling done a few years ago, fourth from the front and top right. Sine then I have suffered really badly with sensitivity to hot and cold. I have a little root exposure in that tooth and the few around which is unbearable if you touch it. Over the last couple of months I've had toothache requiring antibiotics. The first lot of antibiotics I had without seeing the dentist as I was so ill, the second time I went in with toothache the dentist took an x-ray and said there was nothing wrong on there. He tapped around and the tooth I thought was painful to tap (next one to filling towards the front) but on a second examination he tapped the second molar from the back, which was very painful. He then said it was a sinus infection and gave me antibiotics. I did have a cold at the time. The throbbing toothache has now gone but the tooth still painful to bite on and touch. I have had several x-rays since the filling, each time the dentist tells me there is nothing wrong. What should I do please? I also have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, could this affect my teeth?

Let me guess. The filling was one of those white resin ones that leak like crazy.

Tooth pulps can be sick and nothing show up on x-ray. Probably one is terminally inflamed, on the way to an abscess. A way to diagnose on the upper arch is numb one tooth at a time, to see which tooth is the real culprit.

Once you find the tooth it really is, you can try a penetrating resin sealant to try to stop the pain. But in all probability, you will need a root canal. One more reason to have an old-fashioned amalgam next time you need a filling on a back tooth.

You can go for dentist. After taking out X-Ray they will tell you the exact problem with your teeth.
