After a tooth extraction (rear back top right - cracked root) five years ago, all double top teeth still hurt. I had lots of pain in a rear top left tooth. Again the root was cracked and tooth extracted. The teeth roots' seem red hot and as though there are stinging nettles in the gums. On occasions my cheek bones painfully ache. My lips also tingle. Although it is not painful to eat, seconds after finishing eating this sensation is heightened. I have taken various medication (gabapentin etc}, had numerous kinds of x ray and have been told my teeth are ok. Six weeks ago I had the top back (left) tooth removed as the pain was very bad in that tooth. The dentist said the tooth was ok. I still have the pain and sensation in that site. I have had regular appointments at a Dental Hospital, the Consultant has now told me there is nothing he can do. Please Please is there anyone out there that can help. I'm now finding it difficult to cope.
