After feeling migrating pain between teeth 4 and 6 (sometimes feels like pain in gums, sometimes in teeth) went to a dentist. Plus 4th tooth changed color to grey. He noticed gingivitis and did xray. After that i was told that there is nothing he can see wrong with teeth. Just grey 4 needs a crown. And all pains are coming from periodontitis. So he prescribed penicillin. 3 weeks ago I had deep cleaning. So far there is no difference and no signs of gum healing. Pain is still there. More between 3 and 4. And higher gums (almost where cheeks are). Gums are red and swollen. I'm brushing, flossing and rinsing with chlorhexidine twice a day. Is possible that dentist missed something? Thank you

Normally periodontitis doesn't cause pain except in acute phase with lots of swelling. The Xrays are hard to see well, but I wonder if there is decay in upper right wisdom tooth #1? The RCTs seem acceptable.

What kind of pain, what triggers your pain and how intense is your pain? Dr. MattKw is correct that gum disease does not cause pain. Possibilities may be trauma to gums by brushing too hard and or from deep cleaning. Other possibilities may be sinus pain when you have more pronounce pain bending forward, going up & downstairs and or grinding/clenching.

Thank you for your reply. Pain is pulling, comes and goes very fast. Mostly triggered by movement. For example - turning head or looking down. Sometimes feels like a needle goes up under gum. Only one spot does it - front side of gums over 6 (one with crown). And i don't jump though the roof but it can be strong.
