What can a discomfort behind front left tooth in the palate be? Had CT scans and x-rays down and it doesn't show anything. Pain radiates ear & neck.

Two issues?: One of your front teeth can be non-vital or going non-vital without showing that with any imaging technique. See an endodontist to evaluate the vitality and health of your upper front teeth. The radiating pain is likely not associated with the pain on the front tooth. Further testing is warranted and cannot be done over the internet. ...Read more

I have white raised areas on hard palate, behind front teeth- similar to a squid's curled tentacles. What is this? Do I need to see a Doctor/Dentist?

3yrs ago I had pain in my palate@had front tooth out pain went 4 8months and pain has now returned in my palate any answers please. Thanks?

Ongoing care: You didn't mention if you were in ongoing dental care, but if you had a serious enough condition to warrant treatment which resulted in an extraction, it's likely you have other conditions present that are causing your current pain. You may well have serious conditions, also, that are not painful, but you need to be in good, ongoing dental care to diagnose (and prevent further) these problems. ...Read more

The tooth next to my top front tooth has had infection on@of 4 3yrs and givin pain in my palate y as sorness@pain been in the palate? Havin it out now

;Pain: The infection will find the path of least resistance to drain the area and in your case it is the palate. The pain is from the pressure building up and having no where to go. Think of the pain as pressure building up in a volcano, the eruption is the pressure being relieved (bump on tissue) and the drainage (puss) is the lava. ...Read more

Can a unhealthy upper tooth nerve keep causing re- accuring infections and pain and sorness of the front of the palate?

Can a unhealthy upper tooth nerve keep causing re- accuring infections and pain and sorness of the front of the palate?

Yes but..: Absolutely. You need to be examined and evaluated in order to determine the cause of you pain and soreness and whether it is an unresolved problem\infection, some other tooth or teeth or a combination of multiple issues. We can't know what's actually occurring. Your own dentist can figure this all out for you and suggest appropriate treatment. ...Read more

How long can you have an tooth abcess for without not much swelling, I have had mine for 3yrs causin redness on front gums@pain side palate?

How long can you have an tooth abcess for without not much swelling, I have had mine for 3yrs causin redness on front gums@pain side palate?

Tip of the iceberg!: While you have been lucky (actually unlucky!) for not having much swelling, what is probably going on inside your jaw is a serious infection destroying bone and possibly effecting other teeth either now or in time. I have personally seen patients with large untreated infections and infected cysts become permanently numb and lose teeth from letting these types of infections go untreated. ...Read more

Not unusual: This is not that unusual but if the area is throbbing or you have fever or the chills a visit to the surgeon may be indicated to check for infection. Warm salt water rinses and more healing time might help as well. If there are stitches they can be an irritant until removed. Time heals all wounds, but not in the presence of infection! Good luck! ...Read more

Options: A consultation with your local General Dentist and an Endodontist to discuss your treatment options would be prudent.

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?

Allograft?: You probably meant autograft. Allograft tissue, taken from another person, takes longer to incorporate into the recipient's body. Allografts avoid the need for a donor site and provides an unlimited quantity of tissue for generalized root covering treatments. I hope it makes sense. ...Read more

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

Part of molar tooth: 13 months is the perfect time for the first dental visit. Baby teeth erupting from the palate is not common with baby teeth.
