Teeth No Longer Sensitive?
0

1 post in this topic

Some years ago I had an unfortunate experience at the dentist. As a child, I was eating a candy cane. I bit it and the tooth cracked under the filling. Long story short there, my family had seen a really bad dentist who did a lot of work that didn't need to be done, including putting 8 fillings at one time in my mouth. He did not do this one properly and left an air space under the filling which is probably why it cracked. But that isn't the bad part. The dentist I was seeing after that had to put a new filling in, but it took up 3/4 of the tooth.

As a young adult, I began having pains on that side of my mouth, especially to cold and hot foods. So I went to the dentist and he said that I needed a crown on that tooth because the filling was breaking down. His two daughters were working for him. He told one of them to seat the crown. They began arguing over who would seat the crown. It was all very stupid. And then by the time they settled it, the stuff that they use had set up. So they had to remix it. Then one of them seated the crown. I can't remember which one. This was the permanent crown. When the temporary one as in place, the sensitivity to heat and cold had gone away although I do think I had been told not to eat or drink really cold or hot things lest it loosen the temporary one.

Well... As soon as the numbness wore off of my mouth, there was immdediate pain at that tooth. This is the bad part! Long story short there, somehow they had gotten the adhesive stuff from the crown down under my gums and it had set up. That made the gums swell up and there was a lot of irritation. To get the glue out, he had to cut my gums open and scrape down deep. Then I was told to apply straight flouride to the gums there every night. I did do that for a while but it was very unpleasant.

After that, I had sensitivty in that tooth. And then eventually a tooth on the other side. That tooth also cracked under the filling and during the process of putting in the crown, the tooth abcessed and I had to have a root canal.

I had been using Sensedyne and occasionally another brand of sensitive teeth toothpaste for years. And then I learned that I am intolerant to mint. So I had to quit using those toothpastes. I also can not have clove which is in some dental products.

I did buy some unflavored toothpaste for sensitive teeth. I got it online and it wasn't cheap. In the meantime, I bought some cheap cinnamon flavored Closeup. I was alternating them for a while but then I realized I have been using nothing but the Closeup. And no problems! So... Woo hoo! But... I don't know why the problem went away.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      I hope you do well on your new diet cristiana, whatever it turns out to be.  Another site with lots of paleo diet info is Marks Daily Apple.  He also lists cooking oils that are good for you vs bad for you to eat.  Try searching his site for topics of interest.  I am not too interested in the paleo diet backstory as such.  But it seems like a good diet for many people to try at least. The diabetes forum has good info also, from people with diabetes vs doctors.  They used to have a chat for people to ask questions, but I don't know i that is still active.  From memory, some of the people there limited themselves to 1 cracker a day's worth of carbs.  And they were off their medication completely.   Mostly against doctors advice about diet, but some doctors give bad advice about diabetes to people.  Like telling people they have to eat carbs to be healthy, which is not true. http://www.diabetesforum.com/forum.php
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Welcome!   I am not a doctor, but with your test results you should continue to go forward in the diagnostic process.   My main symptom was anemia and I didn't even have gut issues at all!  People with celiac disease can present in many ways.  My blood test was mildly positive yet my biopsy (via endoscopy) revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage. I would spent time learning about celiac disease and make sure you do not start the gluten free diet before all testing is complete.  This is critical in getting an accurate diagnosis.   Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      My doctor thinks i might have coeliac disease, but i hope not, the thought of not being allowed to eat all the things i love to eat for the rest of my days is daunting! Changes to social life, eating out, bbq's and the all the other joys of life would be immense! I have had two blood tests done for celiac disease, the first one came back as 7.2 u/ml    (normal range 0.0 - 6.9 u/ml) The second one which was taken about a month later came back as 22.0 u/ml What do these results generally suggest?   I am a 47 year old UK male. 13 stone. 6ft tall. I'm booked into see the gut specialist next month and to get a biopsy done. My symptoms which have been going on for about 8 months now include bouts of diarrhea, slight upper stomach aches, fatigue/weak feeling joints in lower body like legs, knees, hips and feet, tingling/burning/stinging feeling in buttock area and backs of legs. slight pins and needles in fingers and toes, slight bloating, small patchy rashes/dry skin that come and go. All of my symptoms are never really that bad, but they all just come and go and are a bit uncomfortable, sometimes they do get worse, but it doesn't stop me getting on with my daily life. Just want to get to the bottom of what could be wrong. When i eat breads, cakes & cereals (which i do a lot) i don't really notice that it makes my symptoms any worse, so can this be down to gluten? Any advice much appreciated. Regards J.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
