Bridge nightmare



Junior member
May 20, 2021
I had a upper GI over a year ago. When they took out the probe they loosened my front teeth. I evenly had to have them pulled and got a 6 tooth bridge last July. I have pain in the teeth under this bridge but they tell me there is nothing wrong. My dentist made me a night guard thinking I was grinding. As long as I wear the guard I have no pain. I have been wearing this guard 24/7 unless I am eating. I have been back to the oral surgeon who pulled my front teeth, to endodontist and a prosthodontist. I am terrified I am going to have to wear this guard for the rest of my life. It is very disheartenin.
