It would be difficult to make a diagnosis on your tooth from describing tapping pressure alone without an xray of the tooth.Tapping pressure could indicate a dead tooth with an abscess at the tip or it could indicate a tooth in hyperocclusion that has an inflamed ligament around it.This could occur from grinding on a tooth with a premature opposing tooth contact.Both instances are entirely different scenarios and have different treatments.If you have no swelling,there is no pimple above the tooth and there is not a large filling in the tooth,you may just be hitting the tooth prematurely.Hope this helps.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
