I am having issues with my teeth clicking, but it stared with pain in my back upper teeth, mainly the left side. I went to a dentis and they did xrays on this and saw where I had two wisdom teeth in my upper mouth that are impaceted, but said they were not cutting through my gums. They referred me to an oral surgeon so I went and they said they did not think it was my wisdom teeth. Another dentist I went to said that this could be the only thing causing me pain. Can anybody help me?

cjbowiegirl,

It is always a difficult situation when you get conflicting advise. It seems that you will have to get another opinion for a different oral surgeon. The dentists believe that the wisdom teeth are the problem. I assume that they came to this conclusion after they had ruled out all other causes, such as cavities, infection, etc.

It is basically up to you, as only you know how much it bothers you. If it is a problem, then you are going to continue to seek a solution, and that seems to lie with an oral surgeon.

Do not go to the one you have already seen. You might ask your dentists for a copy of your records and x-rays, to take with you to the oral surgeon. If, for some reason that this surgeon also says it is not your wisdom teeth, ask for a reason why you are hurting and what can be done about it.

Good luck.

Clicking can be caused by your teeth being impacted but you may also want them to check your TMJ (Temperal Mandibular Joint) this joint tends to "click" sometimes while chewing or even just talking. It is known to sometimes be painful.

Hope this helps Smile

I have already faced it.Wisdom tooth pain should be taken lightly. Another good idea is rinsing your mouth with a salt-water solution. Using a mixture of about eight ounces of water with two teaspoons of salt, gently rinse your mouth with the solution. Salt-water rinses clean your mouth and help dislodge pieces of food that may be trapped in the gums around your tooth, exacerbating wisdom tooth pain.You should take some antibiotic tablet for pain.
