Funny wierd feeling where teeth are missing in jaw



Oct 26, 2009
Does anyone else get this type of feeling? Like a fuzziness type almost pins and needles but not type feeling more like a sort of tightness in lower jaw with a little bit of soreness type pain? If that makes any sense whatsover! Its mostly where my back teeth arent there anymore.

I just googled it and really wish i hadnt - the extreme being mouth cancer and the least being tmj....

I know my mouth is bad but its not as bad as it was!

Can anyone shed any light on this pls?

Your description is a bit vague, can you elaborate a bit? Are all your back teeth missing? Do you wear dentures? Can you describe what you're feeling a bit better?
