    Default Problem with Biting down (pain)


    The last few days, I've been noticing that when I bite down on something, I get a weird pain sensation. It only happens with hard surrafces like crackers and things. But even when I was chewing gum, it hurt.
    I have a dentist app. in December, but I don't know if I should go now or not.
    Some things that ar ecold even hurt sometimes, like ice cream. I didn't notice it until yesterday, when it was like a pain schock through my teeth and gums. It doesn't really hurt, it's more like an annoying feel. I can't really describe it.
    Does anyone else know about this?

    You have sensitive teeth, gums and need to "google this"...

    Cold will hurt as a result.

    There are toothpastes for sensitive gums/teeth and I suggest you buy some and change over...

    It's not a tooth ache, rather nerves that can't cope with cold ..

    I bought some sensitivity tooth paste ( i think), but I haven't tried it.

    But it's not just with cold...


    **mental note: google it later** I will try to do that..

    Thank you!

    My mom had something like that where she would bite down on something cold or hard and she would feel a pain or ache in her tooth for about 20 seconds. it turns out it was a crack in her tooth... apparently if you chew often on one side of your mouth, or if a tooth has already had some sort of work done (filling or whatever), the tooth can get a small "fissure" that needs to be repaired. thats what her dentist told her... may be worth checking out w/ a dentist, or at least researching a bit on your own to see if that might be what the problem is!

    One cause for sensitive teeth, among many is poor oral hygiene.

    I mention this, not because I suspect it of you, but because it's one aspect of the situation that is controllable.

    Make sure that you are brushing twice daily and that you floss every day. Use a mouth wash as well after you floss.

    Also - use a brush **only** with soft bristles and brush lightly. Food particles are soft and easily removed so you don't need to press down very hard. If you press too hard, you can irritate and even wear away your gum tissue which will start to expose the nerve tissue below. Naked nerve tissue isn't very good with hot and cold sensations!

    Don't delay your appointment with the Doc.

    Good luck.

    I do brush twice daily, and I floss at least once a day.

    I think I use Oral B soft, but I'm not sure. I try not to press down, but I sometimes do it without paying attention.

    Thank you!

    You need to have dentist check this sooner than December; it could be nothing, or it could be something more serious like a cracked tooth or an abcess, an infection at the root of the tooth.
