Mouth pain.

Mar 02, 2016 7:43 PM

I've seen a few post in the past about teeth. But I can't find them nor do I remember what all was said. So my question is who treats your mouth teeth pain? And is it more fibromyalgia or is it something else? My Insurance does not have a dental plan so I'm ki d of stuck in that respect.

Oral surgeon can assess you.I think that still qualifies under medical

Hmmm..ok..and I'll get the mouth guard also.. See if it helps.

Because as it is now eating was my last pleasure and now it's like chewing nails when I est bread or anything.. So it's just not fun nor fair. I've been doing f shakes ( protien and veggies) and slushies for meals

Yes I have. Thought I had a cavity but as fast as it came it went. I have a hard time eating also. Ugh! I just don't know what to do either.

Newfibrogirl, an OTC splint might bring some relief if it's TMJ. But even if it is, the OTC splints don't compare to the special molded ones. Some orthodontists will do payment plans for them. Check the oral surgeon first though. Hugs & prayers it's not too bad! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Most of my teeth need to come out but I can't afford a dentist. Is there medical coverage for oral surgeons in Canada?

It depends on the cause of your pain. If possible look for supplemental dental insurance. Also look for a volunteers in medicine near you. You can also try finding a dental college near you that offers free or low cost treatment.

Describe the pain, it could be from cavities, infection, bruxism, Tmj...
In general a dentist is the first line of treatment for mouth related pain. Be careful with otc mouth guards, they can actually make some conditions worse. Keep a journal of the pain, where it is, and visual signs, how bad it is, etc. this will be useful for when you can see a doctor about this specifically.
