Hi doctor,

My bottom teeth have been feeling very sensitive for the last few days now. However, I have had a blast on my gum towards the back of my tooth for about a month now. I have seen my dentist and he explained it was just like a spot, although it keeps coming back even when I pop it myself. I was wondering if these issues may be linked in any way?

Welcome to

The sensitivity of bottom teeth can be most commonly due to gum infection leading to gingivitis or periodontitis. So, my suggestion is to consult an oral physician and get evaluated. An X-ray can also be done for confirmation. For now, use anti-sensitivity toothpaste twice a day. Use a soft toothbrush to brush your teeth. Hope this helps. Regards.
