Hi all!

My first time posting in this forum. Hopefully you guys will be able to give me some advise.

Recently my upper right 1st molar feels weird. More like a sensitive aching pain. Whenever I use my electric toothbrush, the weird feeling came back, it feels as if the tooth is "popping".

Went back to the dentist last week for a check, he took an x-ray and found no cavity at all. Everything looks fine, he didn't give any reason for it feeling weird or it aching. Asked him could it be enamel wearing off? He say could be.

When I'm inserting the floss between 1st and 2nd molar, it hurt a little too.

What could it be?

You could have something like a small seed or particle under the gum causing inflammation. I once had a similar problem and the dentist found nothing, but then with a fever two days later I went to the doctor and was found to have a sinus infection. The pain was transmitted and felt like a tooth, but wasn't.

OP: If your issue persists, I would for sure stay off refined sugars for a while. Learn to work with "dabs" of myrrh tincture or oil of oregano (strong oil) and these two work wonders for any mysterious pain I get sometimes. Of course, some scheduled ibuprofen can help too. I take it with food of course for arthritis issues and it covers so much.

Went to my dentist and took an x-ray for in case. All clear. Thno cavity no nothing. He mentioned that it might be my enamel wearing off too! I'm using sensitive toothpaste now and leaving it in that tooth for a few minutes. It helps.

Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for the reply! I did went to a doctor too, he say my sinus is fine. So, I went to my dentist. No cavity found and x-ray seems fine so he mentioned that it might be enamel wearing down.
