Pain with permanent bridge

User Level:
Posted by: danhawk  (6 years ago)
Hello all!

I had a bridge on my three teeth on my lower left side. After having the temporary bridge put in I started to have some discomfort. I could not eat on that side of my mouth. The dentist said the bite may be off and she did some adjustments. The pain disappeared. Three weeks ago, I went back to get the permanent bridge put it. When the dentist was placing it, I never had anesthetics so that I could feel proper placement.

Since the day I had the permanent bridge put in, I had lot of pain and discomfort. It hurt when I tried biting down on that side of my mouth. I went back to the dentist three times to get my bite adjusted but this didn't solve the problem. The pain gets more intense each day. I was also having a throbbing pain in my jaw and ear now. Pain killer helps for some time but once it wears off, the pain comes back. I called the dentist again this morning and he said the pain is due to inflamed gums and when the bridge is settled, the pain will go away. Is this pain normal that I am going through or something else needs to be done? I wonder if the pain will really go away.

Please give me some help! Thank you.
