I have an issue with my top 4 front teeth. I feel splinter like sharpness when I run my tongue between the gaps of my teeth. This increases after flossing.
The problem is, many dentists I've asked to look at this say there is nothing there. Even x-rays don't show anything.
They are definitely there.
Has anyone patient or dentist come across this?
It's been irritating me for over 20 years now.

You may have gum recession where the cementoenamel junction may feel like you described. Have your dentist identify the source of your recession which may be from brushing too hard.
