Pink dot size of pea on inside of mouth near front teeth roof. Biopsy negative for tumor. Has not grown in size for 5 years. Get surgical removal?

Allograft used on a few bottom front teeth needed to be redone. Nerve endings very painful. Does the palate have as many sensitive nerve endings?

My two front teeth were sensitive and sore about a week ago. I switched to Sensodyne. No help, now my front top and bottom teeth hurt so bad. I can't eat or sleep. My hard palate is white and super sensitive. There are no cavities and I brush twice daily!

Possible infection: Typically "sensitive teeth" do not cause pain at the level you are describing. The white and painful palate is concerning for infection in the soft tissue. It does not take long for infection to travel from your mouth into your brain so this needs to be looked at today as 24 hours can make a big difference. If you cannot see your Dentist then utilize Urgent Care or ER. ...Read more
