    Has anyone had a squeezing tooth feeling after having dental work that does not go away? Also feels like gum is swollen
    even though I don't think it is. I can feel the swollen feeling around gum in upper tooth that was worked on and teeth next to it plus the lower gum on same side where I had wisdom tooth extracted and lower tooth next to it.

    I had 2 wisdom teeth removed on upper and lower left side a year ago.
    The lower tooth had a cyst and was right sitting on a nerve.They only took half of the tooth and cyst, I was doing well with no problems until 6 weeks later I went to my dentist to get fillings on upper and lower left side 2nd molars. The day I had the filling on upper tooth I went home in terrible pain. Turns out the upper one had to get root canal. Heres the thing. When the tooth hurt badly after the filling it not only had extreme pain it mostly had terrible pressure in it which made the lower left side jaw hurt as well. Then after the root canal the crazy part is. The pressure never left. Plus I can feel the pressure in the lower left jaw too. Its worse in the upper left 2nd molar that was filled and rt canal-ed. It has completely changed me. I am distracted by it everyday. Its very uncomfortable. I want my life back. I want to feel normal again. It feels like my gum is swollen on that side and or a ton of pressure like somebody pushing on tooth and lower jaw. Oral surgeon says he doesn't know, but kinda blames it on clenching. I wore a night guard doesn't help. I take magnesium which helps with clenching tremendously. All the dental work I had to go through without a break in a years time caused this clenching which now is very much improved. My jaw feels off and not line properly but they put that tape between teeth and say its fine. I don't know what to do or who to go to anymore. Will I be like this forever ? I thought because dentist see so many patients, that there had to be somebody they worked on with my symptoms. I really figured by now with seeing the oral surgeon, endodontist and dentist that one of them would have an answer. Does anyone else have these symptoms? or has any of you dentist out there encounter this with your patients. I am searching for answers.

    I have felt this before, however I have just ignored it until it went away. May not be the best solutions, probably isn't, but reaching out to your doctor would be my best guess.

    You have to look for the guidance of a dental expert, ideally a periodontist or oral specialist, who does this sort of work, and have him or her take a X-ray, either a CT scan or Panorex. The picture ought to be of your teeth as well as your jawbone. This will allow you to preclude any sort of disease, cyst, or issue at the extraction site that could account for the repeating swelling. It's conceivable that there's an issue with the tooth nearby the extraction attachment. The tooth may have a cavity or need a root canal treatment, which would makes it feel just as its influencing the attachment socket. Teeth are near one another, and regularly neither the patient nor the dental practitioner can tell precisely which tooth is creating an issue.
