Tooth Sensitive To Touch
My front left tooth is extremely sensitive to touch and can hurt when i touch it. Is this a cavity?
Could be: It could be a large cavity that has gone into the pulp or nerve of the tooth causing an abscess. It could be that the tooth was hit in an accident in the past and is now abscessed. Maybe you are grinding on that tooth in your sleep. You need to see a dentist asap to find the cause and get it treated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Lower right wisdom tooth doesn't hurt but is sensitive to touch, fully erupted for years. Will general dentist have hard time pulling? Local used only
Need help. I've got a sensitive to touch and chew bump on my gum where my wisdom tooth should come in at.?
Bump: It is hard to answer without knowing whether you do or do not have a wisdom tooth coming in, and without knowing the condition of the gum in the area. Please have a dentist check, as the area you are describing is common to start gum disease called periodontitis. This is #1 cause of tooth loss in adult (not from having a cavity!) x-rays will show if a wisdom tooth is now pushing out, if so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a left molar tooth extraction 3 days ago and now my tooth right next to it is very sensitive to touch with a toothbrush. Is this normal?
No, but common: While sensitivity is not normal, it is a common occurrence. It may be related to the adjacent tooth temporarily having no gum covering the root surface. As the extraction site heals, the sensitivity usually subsides. It may also be related to local inflammation. If it does not get better, have your dentist take a look to make sure no other treatment is necessary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had root canal treatment almost 3 years ago. The tooth is now in pain, i believe it is infected and sensitive to touch. Amoxcillin any help?
Possibly: Depending on how the tooth was restored after the root canal was completed will be a determining factor as to the cause of a possible infection. Recurrent growth of bacteria may temporarily respond to the antibiotics, but long term prognosis can be determined by your dentist or endodontist. A fracture of the tooth could cause the same symptoms and render the tooth hopeless. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
