Hello again people, it always seems to happen to me at Christmastime! I was eating an apple the other day, when a bit of it got lodged between the right one of my upper two front teeth and the one next to it on the upper right. This has now left me with a sharp pain in my gum whenever I eat anything harder than a slice of bread. (Pain diminishes a bit when not eating). This seems a bit similar to what 'ThisIsNotMyName' said in his post about dental trauma/gum pain. I have just seen my dentist for my six-monthly recently (which I had to put off once, due to nerves) and I really can't put up with having to go back again so soon, especially not if something needs to be done! Please someone, tell me that I can just take XX tablets to fix it? Then maybe I can pluck up courage to see Dentist Man in the new year. "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" Repaired!
