    Unexplainable Mouth Pain

    I’ve been experiencing pain for about a month now in my upper right mouth area near the back. I went to the dentist and they couldn’t see any infection or cavities in that area so they thought my wisdom tooth could be causing the pain. Just to make sure it could be that i went to a different dentist to get a second opinion and once again they couldn’t find anything on my x rays so he thought it might be my wisdom tooth. So i ended up getting both wisdom teeth on my right side extracted and within 2 weeks later the pain came back. So once again i went back to the dentist to see what could be causing the pain, he took more x rays and unfortunately still couldn’t find any cavities or infections. The pain is more of a sharp burning tingling throb in my right side gums and teeth. I’ve been googling my symptoms and i’m trying not to self diagnose but since no dentist can see anything on my x rays could it be a medical problem?

    RE: Unexplainable Mouth Pain

    Do you clench your jaw when you sleep? Maybe you could try an over the counter mouth guard. You may not notice that you are doing it but have the pain during the day from it. You can get a soft gummy type at your local drug store. Wear it a few nights, a week or so, and see if things get better?
