Sensitive teeth to heat

Common Questions and Answers about Sensitive teeth to heat


Avatar n tn I am feeling sensitivity to heat only among the teeth on the upper left side of my mouth and have had no sensitivity to cold. Last week I went to the dentist for a check-up (the heat sensitivity started suddenly the night before---not really pain and not long lasting). She was suspicious of a tooth (#13) but couldn't see any problems in new x-rays or as she probed it. When the heat sensitivity continued, I went back yesterday and she found that I had a cracked filling in #15.
Avatar n tn teeth that had root canal treatment had the nerve removed. these teeth should not be sensitive to heat. changing the crown is like repainting a car hoping to make it run better. something is going on possibly related to a fracture, a periodontal problem, or a different tooth, or maybe something else altogether. I'd have a root canal specialist evaluate it.
Avatar m tn Then I went back a few weeks later for the permanent crown and they took the temporary off and my left tooth was extremely sensitive to cold, to air, to everything. The permanent crowns they sent were the wrong color so they had to send them back out and I had to get temporary ones put on again. They used the same temporary's from before. And this past week or so I've been extremely sensitive to cold on my left side to the point where I had to take 2 ibuprofen daily and drink with a straw.
Avatar n tn I went to an endo dentist who said root canal then to a physio she seem to think with the TMJ i should wait for it to settle. It is confussing to know who to go to...when i wake up and during the waking i cant get my mouth open wide enough to eat and when i do i cant take anything on the harder side. A couple of days ago i had that buzzing in my head its gone. .

Avatar m tn hi one of my teeth in my upper right back area is sensitive to really hot things the cold dont bother it to much i think it is a tooth that i got a small filling on about almost 2 months ago i can chew ok on it but when something really hot hits it it feels very sensitive it dont bother me when i am not chewing on it or trying to sleep so i dont need any pain killers any idea why its like that thanks
Avatar n tn I've always taken really good care of my teeth and still do. once I was around 15 weeks they became very sensitive to heat+cold and pressure. I'm 35 weeks now and nothing has changed and my teeth still are having problems. my dentist tried having me change to a softer tooth brush and toothpaste for sensitive teeth and it has not helped at all.
Avatar m tn It may be the cavity was large and the filling is close to the nerve. Pain to heat and cold can be transmitted from the filling to the nerve. It does sound as though that tooth may need more treatment, i.e a root canal. You may have developed a the problem after the xrays were taken. Good luck. About all you can do is get to see your dentist and have him focus on the area that is bothering you.
86075 tn?1238118691 Enigma man (whatever that means) went to Sprawl Mart to get a money order for my daughter's birthday (she waits forever to cash a personal check) and went to the sporting goods section and say about 4-5 different "mouth guards". The 2 most expensive that you could "boil and fit" were $2.44 and $7.74. Maybe they aren't the solution but neither is $600 for a night guard. But at least you can buy the $7.74 one and try it out without burning a hole in your pocket.
Avatar f tn Lately, I have become very sensitive to A/C. When the cold air blows down my neck and back I begin to get a cold and tingly sensation down by back. It lasts for hours. I have tried Aleve, Advil and Tylenol to no avail. If I get a good nights sleep, I wake up feeling OK. But, if I come in contact with cold air it starts all over again. I too am desperate.
Avatar n tn My tongue feels as though I've burned it but I havent. Its very sensitive to citrus, spicy foods and its hard to even taste the food. Its even difficult to brush because of the toothpaste, it feels like my tongue and mouth are burning. Also, at the same time the sensations started, I got small red bumps all over my mouth. Very small but visible very close up. Its almost like my lips are chapped.
Avatar f tn Hi, Welcome to the world of sensitive teeth. You have my sympathy. I'm not sure if my problem is like yours, but I have found that the only thing that works for me is toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Nothing else has helped and my dentists all have nothing to offer. When the tooth dentin gets thinned, by brushing or gum recession, or perhaps periodontal disease, the nerve inside the tooth is exposed via tubules in the dentin.
Avatar n tn The feeling seems to be more intense on the left side of my body though. Again, it feels very sensitive to the touch, almost like I have been sunburned and it really bothers me when my clothes brush up against it. There is absolutely no redness, bumps or lesions of any kind. The pain doesn't feel very deep either, it is just on the skin.
Avatar m tn No pain when I tap the tooth, and not really sensitive to heat or cold other than actual ice, and seems to come and go. Is worse if I spend time looking down working at my desk for an hour or so, and wakes me in the night. I am going to another dentist but am fed up with it all. I have used all my insurance allowance up so far just on this tooth which was supposed to be a simple filling. Please help with any advice as to what is going on.
Avatar n tn Since graft procedure, the crowned tooth has become extremely sensitive to heat and cold and is also uncomfortable with chewing pressure. The tissue graft and harvest site have healed perfectly and both look "excellent" according to the periodontist that performed the procedure.
Avatar f tn Sometimes during a root canal a piece of the nerve can be left. Did he do and xrays after the procedure to make sure your teeth were all clear? I would also recommend a sensitive tooth paste. It really helps with the heat sensitivity.
Avatar f tn I've never had a cavity but my gums seem to be receding in some areas and my teeth have become more sensitive to touch, heat and cold. Does brown teeth near the gum line usually signify calculus, or problems with the roots? Not sure if a periodontist is best if teeth are also involved.
Avatar f tn It is a little unclear from your post if your scalp is just sensitive or if there is also a rash or something involved. That said, my scalp was very sensitive when I was on Incivek. It burned even though it was not red and it burned long before I ever got a rash. I had my hair cut in a pixie style before treatment to avoid the weight of longer hair pulling the hair out. Also, short hair was easy to comb and never got tangled, again avoiding pulling the hair out unnecessarily.
Avatar n tn I have two crowns and the pain travels from the top right crown around my ear and to the bottom crown. Two top teeth feel spongy and i cant eat on the right side of my mouth. Also, the left side of my tongue is numb and and is very sensitive to cold and heat..
Avatar n tn I am not a doctor ,nor have any medical training other then my dear ol mother , LOL. To all whom have this pain described in different ,but similar ways I can offer what has helped me through the years . In researching my symptoms, It's possible we'er experiencing " Trigeminal neuralgia ". Please, research this before continuing and evaluate if this is something you may be experiencing. The medical world isn't very clear as to the reason why this occurs.
Avatar n tn that touch the tooth cause extreme pain making it hard to eat. It is not cold sensitive at all. I have not gone back to the dentist since the sensitivity has come back, I feel they won't know what to do again. The x-rays showed no cracks, my gums are very healthy, only 2 other cavities in 29 yrs. No prior dental work ever besides this RC. I have NO sinus or ear problems, no pain in my jaw, we tried antibiotics prior to the 2nd root canal, but that didn't help.
660300 tn?1224793961 I had my impacted wisdom tooth removed on 10/01/2011 (UK) and the surgeon said it had 4 roots instead of 3. 3RD molar was on the lower right hand side of my jaw.I was awake throughout with just injections & happy gas (nitrous oxide) to make the process more comfortable. Had incredible pain a few hours after & extremely sensitive teeth around the front of my lower teeth (incisors) still have the sensitive pain ,especially when it's been cold outside .
Avatar n tn A few days after the surgery to a week and a half afterwards, the teeth immediately next to the teeth removed were extremely senstive to cold or heat, and experienced some pain while chewing. Now, it is only my rear left bottom back tooth that experiences this, but it is extremely sensitive now to hot and cold and its a while after the surgery. Is there cause for concern? Or is this STILL part of the healing process?
Avatar n tn He also said something about my gums maybe being sensitive. I'm not sure what to do about it. I've started using Sensodyne for sensitive teeth 5 days ago so I can't give results on that just yet. If any of you have any ideas on what the cause of this sudden sensitivity is and what I can do to stop it, it would be appreciated. Thank you!
748543 tn?1463449675 Dental Occlusion must be synchronized with healthy Mandibular Function as it relates to a healthy head position and by extension a healthy posture. So why are teeth/occlusion so important for posture? In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull.
Avatar n tn The tooth is very sensitive to cold and a little sensitive to heat. (I have sensitive teeth anyway.) How long can a tooth be sensitive like this? 2. When I eat cold or hot things, it seems like the sensitivity radiates to my jaw. But I can't tell if this is because my jaw is so sore or because of the tooh. But I also have pain in my jaw at random times that is true TMJ pain. I also have a sinus infection, which makes my jaw hurt too! 3.
Avatar n tn Had a course of seven Vitamin B12 injections over seven weeks about a month ago. Now I have skin spots at various parts of the body, arms, legs, neck, but mostly on the chest. They feel like insect bites and are very, very itchy. Parts of my forearms, chest and neck also feel "prickly." The itchy spots are reddish in colour and similar to "heat bumps" (as they were called when I was a child).
Avatar f tn (My cheek feels like this sometimes too) The steroid seemed to help, the pain was way more manageable. Ice seems to help, and sometimes heat. The ibuprofen helps almost right away. But I don't want to keep taking so much ibuprofen. I'm afraid that if I call my dentist, she'll just schedule me for a root canal right away. I'm just looking for some advice/second opinions? Please help if you can. I don't sleep very much, I feel out of it a lot, and the pain makes it hard to do anything.
541150 tn?1306037443 He is on science diet sensitive stomach and hates it. It is such a relief to find someone else struggling with this in a cat. I am going to get that supplement and talk to the vet about the food. This may be gross, but when his butt is the size of a quarter and red and raw and you have managed to get it cleaned up withour him killing youu put anything on it to sooth the raw skin?
Avatar n tn As for migraines, I started getting them as a child although they were not often - usually after a day i9n very bright sunlight - I was always sensitive to light - can't handle sudden bright lights at all - all my senses are hightened actually and this causes irritation to those around me as well as to me. I hate etreme heat heat and cold. I have often wondered if its a thyroid problem, but doc says no although shes only done basic tests.
