Either way, this week, it began to be sore/uncomfortable. I have a big overbite, and I possibly grind my teeth during my sleep. I have had a lot of cavities in my past but I have been flossing a lot recently and brushing well, electric tooth brush and all. I have had a root canal before but it was on my bottom row of teeth and far from here, it doesn't hurt either.
When I floss, three of my molars (back left, top upper back left, right upper left) smell funny, or just smell.. bad. My lower right does not, for some reason. I floss here everyday and yet it smells terrible each time. It causes my mouth to smell bad at times too. Those places do not hurt. But my top left upper molar hurts, and the one on upper right does slightly too.
Why? I don't understand why it'd be an abscess or such if it had just gotten filled. Though I understand the possibility.
Also, my dentist claimed that my wisdom teeth are coming in- I have five. One extra supernumerary tooth on my left. I discussed with an oral surgeon, he claimed the bottom wisdom teeth would damage my teeth, but he didn't really say anything about my top ones coming in. I am young and so these tooth will not fit in my mouth, there's no room, I have history of supernumerary teeth too, two pulled out. I have not pulled out any wisdom teeth yet.
Everytime I bite there- it just makes my face cringe up like I bit into something sour, or overly sweet, or something. It's a dull pain, not even pain if I think hard- just a nuisance.
I really don't want to go through a root canal. If I do have to again, I'm finding a new dentist because I don't know why he can't detect it earlier.
If anyone could give me some help, please advise what to do! Is it wisdom teeth or something else? Please help. Thank you.
