Squeezing feeling in tooth

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: tlcham  (5 years ago)
I had wisdom teeth surgery 8 months ago. Only 6 weeks later had to 2 fillings on upper and lower 2nd molars next to the wisdom teeth that were pulled.
Then had to have a root canal on one of the filled teeth. I have had constant squeezing feeling or pressure in the tooth that was filled and root canaled also the lower 2nd molar feels the squeezing. It gets a burny feeling in gum area and maybe into the jaw where surgery was done.
Does anyone have neuralgia? Are these the symtoms of that? Why won't this pressure/squeezing feeling go away. I suffer everyday all day long. Some days a little better. I also clecnh teeth from all this now. I do wear a soft lower night guard but it doesnt help.

This is unusual and will be hard to diagnose. Neuralgias are always very painful, not like what you describe.

An idea would be to let your dentist test the tension of your jaw muscles. Maybe muscle spasm is causing these symptoms. If in doubt, they could give you a muscle relaxant to see if the clenching is causing it. Incidentally, those soft nightguards are not much good.
