Would having a bottom tooth prematurely hit the left side of a top tooth cause soreness? Only half the tooth gets sore. Sometimes it even creates a tiny zap when eating but this is rare.
Premature contact. All tooth symptoms will be relieved after the occlusal adjustment by your dentist. Very common benign procedure.
Yes. As long as the tooth did not get knocked out your symptoms should improve in a day or so. The attachments that connect the tooth to the gum can get stretched and that can cause soreness.
Occlusal Problem. If your bite is off and a bottom tooth is hitting an upper tooth prematurely it can cause soreness. I would recommend you make an appointment with your dentist and have the area checked out. Your bite may just need to be adjusted or something else may be causing it. Prolonged premature hitting of the upper and lower tooth could lead to complications.
Bite adjustment. Yous should see your dentist to have your bite checked and adjusted before it creates more issues.
Yes. See your dentist for analysis and adjustment to your bite.
It is not rare. If you are constantly putting too much pressure on that tooth it will aggravate the nerve and make it hypersensitive and always sore. The tiny zap could be nerve pain, especially if there is any crack in the enamel. Your dentist needs to make sure it does not hit too hard or the pain will continue and could even damage the nerve irreversibly.
