Atypical toothaches

Atypical toothaches

I feel pain on some of my teeth. I had checked it out with my dentist and found no cause for it. I am still experiencing mild pain and am irritated by it. I want to extract those teeth. Why is my dentist refusing to do it?

A less-common condition is the atypical toothache. The pain is chronic and usually there is no identifiable cause for it. Extracting the teeth usually does not solve the problem, as the pain tends to stay.

Features:

  • distressing continual pain condition from a tooth or teeth
  • pain stays longer than four months
  • tooth/teeth and surrounding gum and bone look normal.

Management:

  • medication is the treatment of choice
