About two months ago one of my upper back teeth started aching. It was a mild to moderate pain. However, after a few weeks, the pain became worse. I went to the dentist to have it looked at. After some x-rays and examinations, he could not find anything wrong with the tooth. He said it could only be a bruised nerve from biting down too hard on the tooth. He advised me to give the tooth some time to recover.
Well, it’s been a month but I still feel pain in the tooth. It also hurts to biting down. Has anyone had similar experience? If the pain is indeed caused by a bruised nerve, how long does it take to heal? Thanks so much for your advice.
