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 more

Recession: Can be caused by improper brushing technique or toothbrush, poorly positioned tooth, infection (gum disease), occlusal trauma, gum-line decay, and other reasons.

Need help. I've got a sensitive to touch and chew bump on my gum where my wisdom tooth should come in at.?

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 more

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?

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 more
