For nigh-on six months now I've been having aches on both sides of my upper jaw; it ranges from a mild continuous ache to throbbing that makes my whole head hurt. It corresponds to the position of two unerupted upper wisdom teeth... but my dentist tells me unerupted wisdom teeth can't hurt. She feels it's likely to be jaw-clenching brought on by stress. I'm having real trouble getting on board with this as I don't live a stressful life, and nothing has changed in the last six months to bring this on.
I'm sat here and can feel the throbbing as I type, but my jaw is perfectly relaxed. My dental hygiene is excellent and she could find no problems with any of my teeth, nor with the wisdom teeth in an X-ray.
Her diagnosis has brought me to the end of my tether. If I wasn't stressed before, I'm heading that way now!
Has anyone else experienced this? What did it turn out to be and how did you resolve it? Any thoughts most welcome. Thanks in advance.
