Tingling teeth...freaking out
« on: June 17, 2014, 08:44:44 PM »
Hi, I work at a dentist's office and I have been having tingling teeth lately. I am not sure if it is because seeing people around my age (mid twenties) get dentures is scaring me, but I have a tingling feeling in my teeth that jumps around. It started in a tooth that actually has a very tiny cavity (dentist checked all of my teeth and said they were fine and to keep the particular tooth clean until I had time to fill it since the decay was so small) but the numb/tingling feeling jumps around - even goes into my hard palate - at times. I am so scared I am going to lose all of my teeth. It is mainly in my front teeth - the teeth I am most afraid to lose. I keep telling myself it is anxiety but it is so constant during the day that I don't know what to think. Please help.  :traurig001:

Probably anxiety, could possibly be stress-induced TMJ, but if the dentist didn't comment on it, I don't think you have anything going on.  Tooth decay and gum disease are what a dentist makes a living on; they'd be able to spot that in a minute.
