Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

It is unlikely that both upper and lower teeth have pulpitis or an abscess at the same time. It is more likely that the pain from your upper teeth is being referred to tour lower teeth and vice versa.

Since you mention that your palate is tender, is it possible that one or more of your upper teeth is infected.

For now, please take some anti inflammatory medication. Alternate between Advil and Tylenol every 6 hours. You will need to see a dentist for an X ray of your upper and lower teeth. Don't worry, it is nothing very serious.

Hope this answers your question. Please leave a positive rating if my answer has helped you.

I do not get credit for it otherwise!

Regards,

Dr Behere

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

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!!
