Hello doctor,

From my left front tooth, all the way to the back of my teeth on top hurt. I cannot close my mouth and it feels like the pain is going up into the bone under my nose. What could that possibly be?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • From your description, it seems to me that you have an apical periodontitis.
  • If you have any cavity related to this area, the tenderness is because of it.
  • Or you must have malocclusion, meaning there is more pressure on these teeth.
  • You need to visit a dentist who will investigate to find the exact cause, as well as, treat it.
  • I suggest taking:
  1. Tablet Augmentin 625 (Amoxicillin and Clavulanic acid) twice daily for three days.
  2. Tablet Aceclofenac 200 mg twice daily for three days.
  • Avoid eating hard foods.
