Default Dental Pain - HELP!

Hi all, another health medical question I'm affraid. I'm in need of some more advice regarding health problems, dental related.

Some of you may already know that I have had a lot of dental problems over the years, have suffered ever since I was 13 years of age. My problem stems from a young age, a young lad with big overcrowded teeth. This lead to lots of fillings and then root canals at an early age, which then lead to extractions. Thankfully all those fillings and root canals are now gone, so my remaining teeth are filling and RC free.

My problem now is, I'm forever clashing my teeth together and experiencing immense pain which lasts for weeks, months. I only have to jolt my body in some way, either while doing DIY, gardening, or even working on the cars, the slightest jolt and my teeth clash together which leaves me in pain. Even eating is a problem, biting down hard will also leave me in pain, its never ending.

I already wear an upper and lower partial denture, I found it easy to wear dentures, far better than my real teeth. You wouldn't even know I wear partial dentures, its amazing what they can do nowadays, they blend into my real teeth perfectly.

My real teeth look healthy, big and white, but they keep causing me pain. I am back and forth to the dentist, and each time I get told they don't see anything wrong, they say I have sprained the tooth or teeth and to wait.

I am now at the stage where I just want rid of my reaming teeth and opt for a full set of dentures, I am sick and fed up with my teeth constantly clashing and causing me pain, I live in fear every god dam day.

I bumped my head 9 weeks ago on a cupboard while moving my daughter into her new UNI dig, my teeth clashed together and I have been in pain ever since. A few days before I was eating potato wedges of all things, I bit down on hard potato skin and my teeth have hurt like hell ever since.

I was thinking of going to see a private dentist and asking for the rest of my reamaing teeth to be removed and opt for full dentures. My current NHS dentist doesn't want to know, so I've got to look for a new dentist now anyway.

Does anyone have a family member who is a good dentist they can put me in touch with?

Sorry for the long post, but this pain is really getting me down.

Might be worth getting your GP to refer you to a specialist, it might not be just teeth related.

This may help with the sensitivity , it works well for me and came recomended by my Dentist . I use Sensodyne Rapid Relief morning and night and after the usual brushing or when you get a flare up of pain put some on yout tongue and work it around your teeth and gum line but DONT rinse . It works for me and i hope it helps you too .

Thanks fellas, I've done the GP thing a few years ago, all due to having pain on a specific tooth and my dentist did not see anything wrong. The pain was horrendous and my GP referred me to the hospital maxillofacial unit, long story short, the tooth was dying and they eventually extracted the tooth for me.

I reckon the same thing is happening, I used to grind my teeth a lot, and now with my teeth clashing together just puts my teeth at more risk of trauma/getting damaged and dying.

Dentist's cant diagnose a dying tooth, not unless it has decay or an infection/abscess, this can take months even years, meanwhile the patient is left in pain.

Is it worth trying a different dentist?

I have found a different dentist can make a lot of difference, the dentist I had used for several years moved to a different area and at the time I was sad as I thought he was doing a good job. His replacement was a women from a practice down the road, straight away I felt the care she was giving was better. Suddenly the wisdom teeth which the previous dentist had been telling should be coming out ASAP ''just needed to be monitored''.

Years ago my Uncle who had been having numerous teeth problems for many years decided to have all his teeth out. He reckoned it was the best thing he had ever had done but did say he missed some foods as they were impossible with full dentures.

So sorry it’s flared up again Wes.

My father had sensitive teeth - they variously thought it was where he fell out of a lorry cab in the war and fractured his jaw and a number of teeth and/or where he ate food with a high sand content (North African campaign) that wore his teeth badly.

In the end he had all his teeth removed - when he had recovered he said the relief from pain was such that he felt sort of “drunk”.


I hope you find some way to get rid of the pain Wes.

I have a friend who suffered with his teeth whilst he was in the Regiment, so much that all of the teeth were extracted. For years he had a full set but couldn’t get on with them. With his teeth out, his face took on a gummy appearance and his nose looked more crooked. He was a little vain and when he left the army, he came out with a £60,000 lump sum. From this, he spent 20K on having implants top and bottom. The dentist gave him the Hollywood treatment and my mate said it was the best £20K he had ever spent.

If you decide to go privately Wes, do your research on who is good and who is not......

The Sensodyne Rapid Relief is a great suggestion and worth trying.

Hi David, thank you for that tip. By coincidence, I had a flare up of sensitive top teeth and I went to the dentist. He had to give me an x-ray and he opened up the tooth using an injection to freeze everything. He then cleaned it out and told me I needed to floss more often, then he closed up. He said my options are: pull it out, or remove the nerve, or have root canal treatment at £400, if it does not settle.

In the meantime, I am going to try your suggestion first, of using the Sensodyne Rapid Relief. I will mention that I don't have it as bad as Wes. On the toothpaste box it says that its the little holes in the DENTINE layer of the teeth that causes the problems of sensitivity and the Sensodyne carries out the repairs to the holes, making the teeth stronger and whitening them at the same time. How clever is that. Thank you for helping the afflicted

I hope that it works for you now , i use it because like my hair line i have receding gums which comes as my dentist says with old age . I couldnt tell him that he was a cheeky NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD- because he had his hands in my mouth at the time ! So like i said clean your teeth, rinse and spit . Then put a hefty blob in and around the teeth and gums then leave it there . Good luck .
