Customer Question

Customer: are you real?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: when i jump up or down, shake my head, or any other type of motion similar to a quick change of motion with my head, i have a weird type of pain on my entire top set of teeth (just the molars..all of them). If i had to describe the pain, its makes it feel as if my molars are just ganna fall right out of my mouth. and the pain is more-so on the top of them.. like inside my gums. I've had this pain before, but it was temporary and quite long ago.. maybe a year
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dentists generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

i should be more clear that the pain is only in the top molars, and feels like its coming from the inside of the gum tissue (& if i had to guess, it feels like its right by my roots... but i cant be sure because im No dentist!), and as if they are just going to fall out.. but my teeth are strong. I will floss at LEAST once a week, and i'[ll brush 2-3 times a day. Soda drinking is very limited.

The type of pain that you are describing normal is caused by sinus issues.They can be either viral or bacterial.If these symptoms have been presenting themselves for over 10 days and there has been no improvement ,starting on amoxicillin 500 mg every 8 hours for 10 days usually does the trick.If the symptoms are leaving or getting better,using something like Claritin can help.Combining both methods with an anti-inflammatory like Advil every four to six hours will also cut down on the discomfort.
