Default atypical odontalgia

I am a 21 years old woman who seems to encounter what so called "atypical odontalgia". It happens two years ago when I was in the age of 19. I had my teeth pulled out for teeth ortho but it was in the age of 12 so I do not think it is the reason causing my pain.

It is a consistent,tight, dull gum pain in my lower left side of the teeth, and the pain seems to move around. It's not sharp but it really annoys me. I went to the dentist several time but the exams did not show anything wrong. I also took anti-depression pill but now I quit.

I complained this to my parents before but now I endure this by myself because I don't want my parents to worry my condition.

But to be honest I feel anxious and depressed because of this.Because I can't focus on my work and I start to lose my interest. I just hope it can go away.

I am a bit mentally obsession. And I feel embarrassed saying this out because it is not a very common disease...also... from the internet it seems my age is not very common for the disease.

I hope someone can comfort my anxiety and find out a solution for me...that will be really a big help.
Also I hope those who suffer the same problem as me can recover soon!!

Default still there?

Hello, I hope you're not still experiencing your tooth pain, but I can relate to your story. I have constant pain in my teeth although my teeth are structurally fine--dental exam and xtrays showed no problem. My trigger is particles that I breathe in through my nose which then cause a bitter metallic taste and my teeth to hurt. I haven't found much research on atypical odontalgia, but I believe that explains my condition. How did you determine this? I take Aleve and use prescription toothpaste that has high concentrations of fluoride and swish lidocaine in my mouth to help ease my pain. It's disturbing. Angie

Do you have metal fillings in your teeth? You may want to try a mix of water and baking soda to brush your teeth and then swish it and spit it out. This will neutralize the acid in your mouth that could be a part of your problem. You may want to contact a dentist in your area that is a member of the IAOMT. You can search for their website. Click on the "find a doctor link" If you have metal fillings then watch the smoking tooth video on the website.
