Find bew dentist: Without a visual exam and more details, help of any kind is hard to offer you. Sorry. A word of advice, though: if your dentist is not listening to you nor helping you be healthier and happier, you should fond one that will.

Comprehensive exam : There are several things that can cause pain in your mouth and it would take a comprehensive exam to diagnose your problem. This kind of exam takes time, and is much more involved than just a cleaning..

Need more info: Your problems can be from a range of things, from one of a number of medical syndromes to reaction to medications that you're taking, to periodontal problem. You need a good diagnostician. Perhaps it wold be prudent for another dentist to examine you. If there is a dental school in your area, a visit to the oral medicine department may be in order.
