Sensitive tooth jaw ache

Common Questions and Answers about Sensitive tooth jaw ache


Avatar n tn If you put ice on it and it reacted it is more than likely the tooth. Sometimes my ear does hurt when I have a tooth or jaw infection. All these things are all pretty closely related so often if you have pain in one you will get pain in another. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon. I would get to the dentist soon before it gets worse.
Avatar f tn i am having some terrible pains in my right hand side jaw area and up the same side of my face is this tooth ache reason i'm asking is there is no specific pain in my teeth thanks
Avatar m tn In brief, there are muscular toothache, sinus toothace, neurovascular tooth ache, cardiac tooth ache,etc. If dental pulp is healthy, root canal is contraindicated. Assuming sentitive scalp refers to tingling, burning sensation , which is commonly associated with nerve entrapment. If it's caused by nerve entrapment, cold tend to relieve the discomfort.
Avatar f tn I have been getting jaw ache for a while, and I thought it might be due to tooth grinding as I tend to clench my jaw when I'm stressed. But recently it has got worse and worse and I went to the dentist on Christmas eve to be told I have a tooth infection in one of my top molars. I had root canal on a bottom molar not that long ago too and this tooth feels odd too.
4922507 tn?1361076248 The tooth taken out was a baby tooth - I have congenitally missing 2nd premolars on my lower jaw. The extraction seems to go straightforward although i needed a double dose of local anaesthetic, as the first lot didnt seem to take even after about 20 mins waiting. all was well at first. However since the extraction I am suffering from insomnia and just recently I have felt a pain increase.
Avatar f tn Your oral surgeon probably did right thing. Tooth ache is not always caused by dental pathology. You are probably suffering from non odontogenic toothache. Seeing an orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Avatar m tn m thinking it could be TMJ - which is a disorder of the jaw joint. It can cause many symptoms, including ear or jaw pain, as well as headaches, etc. Do you ever catch yourself clenching your jaw? Does your jaw crack or catch when you try to open it wide, such as with yawning? I would suggest starting with your family doctor - just to rule out any infection in the ear, however, if it is TMJ, the best person to treat it would be yoru dentist or oral surgeon. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn It now hurts a little to eat, but is still very bearable, and I feel like tooth #3 is sensitive as well. My dentist took x-rays today and said that everything appeared to be fine, and it may be my wisdom teeth bothering me, but I really feel like the pain is coming from the filled teeth and in the case of my right side, it is not adjacent to my wisdom tooth. Is my dentist missing something/ should I go to another dentist for a second opinion?
Avatar n tn Sinus tooth ache almost always involves upper posterior teeth. Please keep in mind that tooth ache is not always odontogenic. If your dentist can not identify structural pathology of dentoalveolar structure, seeing an orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Avatar f tn You might want to check out other dentists if you think your problem isn't solved by your current dentist. You got to have second opinion. Most people do this to confirm and to be sure that they are diagnosed correctly.
Avatar n tn I had 3 crowns done and one filling replaced last December (two upper molars and last lower molar got crowns); other than the last upper molar being chipped and old fillings, I had nothing wrong with my teeth or gums. Everything went well with the work and the temporary crowns except for the fitting of the last crown on the upper right molar. This one had to be redone several times for fit and the "post" was drilled out more after the first crown didn't fit.
5875644 tn?1375886365 About a week ago I developed a slight tooth ache on the lower left. It is a tooth that is broken, but since I had root canal done on it several years ago, there's no nerve in it. Then, a few days later I started to develop an ear ache in the same area. So now it hurts from my left ear down into my left jaw as well as a slight feeling of pressure above my left eye. I also can feel like post-nasal drip when it does hurt.
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 f tn Over a month ago I had a tooth extracted and the dentist assured me he got the whole tooth however about two weeks ago I ahd little bone chips coming through my gum. Then I staerted having pain in my loer jaw, throat and inner ear. The chips finally fell out this weekend but my ear is still very painful. I can not take antibiotics because it will negate my birth control. Will this clear up on its own now that the chips are gone?
Avatar m tn Apparently none of the were that deep according to my dentist, however my teeth are still extremely sensitive and the sensitivity causes my mouth to ache resulting in migrains and jaw pain. I know that my fillings are not too high because my bite is not interupted. Is this just my mouth recovering from multiple fillings and somthing that will go away on its own or is this some kind of infection developing?
Avatar n tn fillings can be very sensitive for up to a couple of weeks (usually to only cold). If your tooth is sensitive to hot though I would try to see an endodontist because this usually indicates that root canal treatment is needed. It is very true that the pulp/nerve of your tooth is affected by the treatment. Why are you having fillings replaced? Did you have more decay on these teeth or are you having this done for cosmetic reasons?
Avatar m tn While wearing the temporary, I noticed pain, both in the tooth and jaw. Sometimes, the jaw pain was worse than the tooth pain. Three weeks later, I got the permanent put on. While fitting it, my remaining tooth was very sensitive to the many attempts. He said "that's good, it means it's alive". After the permanent was put on, I had bite issues for a week or so, he adjusted, feels better now. I am left with severe pain...most sensitive under my left cheek bone.
698356 tn?1240150727 At first I thought it was tooth infection making my jaw sore and went to the dentist. He said my teeth were sensitive but fine. My doctor then diagnosed TMJ and prescribed low dose anti inflamatories and told me to rest my jaw, not press my teeth together and to eat soft foods. After months of this I went to a different dentist (as mine was away) with a tooth ache and was told I needed a root canal. TMJ disapeared after Root canal. I know I am one of the lucky ones.
Avatar f tn I do have an exposed root at the gumline on that tooth and have very sensitive teeth to begin with. After a week she had me come back and she filed down the onlay some to make sure that there was no contact with the other tooth. The tooth below it hurts when the tooth with the onlay starts in as well. The dentist says that if Ibuprofin is controlling the pain this well, that I probably don't need a root canal but it may be a possibility.
Avatar n tn I have extreme cold sensitivity in the root canaled tooth. Now the pain is an aching feeling through the whole back of my jaw. Plus I have a strange ache just under my earlobe on my neck (my glands?) I was thinking infection but the x-ray showed no sign of one. Can an x-ray always detect an infection? Now the Endo. wants to do an APICOECTOMY. My last appointment with them seemed like they just didn't know why so they'll just try this next.
Avatar n tn on Saterday i experianced real bad tooth ache in a broken top right tooth, (middle back) the tooth istself was almost broken down to the gum, so i went to a emergancy dentist at the local hospital. he said that it cant be extracted because of a infection, so he will clean it up.
Avatar n tn My jaw pain is on left side only - same side as tooth. My crown was placed on tooth with temporary cement and left like that for months - but the off and on discomfort remained. It is NOT same pain I experienced when it was cracked - - it is on the sides only and almost feels like it is loose - yet dentists have examined it and say it is not loose. Also - most of the time when the tooth hurts, my jaw (on left only) hurts - the pain goes back to from of ear area.
Avatar m tn I have been going back to him everyday for a week and the pain is not going away although it has changed. My tooth still feels unsettled and sensitive but the pain is concentrated in front of my ear ( this is pretty relentless) and in various places under and on the side of my jaw. The dentist has just prescribed more of the same antibiotics and said he can open the tooth up again if I want but he cannot guarentee the pain will go away. Dentists and doctors seem to only speak in code.
Avatar n tn I have constant ache and hypersensitivity to cold in my lower right jaw with attacks of increased pain throughout the day affecting the entire right side of my face with little tenderness in my neck under chin and back of jaw over the muscle. The pain does not last more than two weeks and occurs about every two months. It started as random attacks of sharp pain but on the second occurrence there was a more continued ache and the right side of my lip went numb.
Avatar n tn I have a hard knot/lump on my lower right jaw bone behind my wisdom tooth which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
Avatar f tn Yes, but I had a cavity and it was fine for me to have a local anesthetic and a filling. But I do know there is a condition you can get in pregnancy where your jaw gives you tooth pain, especially if you've had a clicky jaw before, and common around 1st trimester when the relaxin hormones kick in. You can probably google it.
