Customer Question
Hi for last week...

Hi for last week have had minor ache in teeth on right side top and bottom but not at same time. went to dentist exays and exam did not show anythng. that morning the pain was in lower right back. we did I guess a bite test and the pain was more for #30 which I assume is the very back tooth on lower right. Dentist visit was two days ago. This morning woke early due to teeth discomfort. now the tooth two in front of the the last tooth lower right is painful when I press on it. the very back tooth does not hurt at all even when I press on it. thanks for any assistance

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

If the pain is most noticeable in the morning and tends to wander from one tooth to another, TMD is part of any differentail diagnosis (list of possible issues).You may be grinding or clenching your teeth at night, causing "occlusal trauma" (pain / injury from excessive biting force to certain teeth). Do you have any jaw or ear area pain ? Is the discomfort most noticeable when you awake ? It may be that you need an appliance called a "night night". This is a device like ones athletes wear to protect their teeth - only quite a bit smaller. To fully diagnose your problem, xrays and an exam are necessary.

Hope this helps,

Dr. Shernan

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!!
