I’ve written before about my sore mouth … it’s just sore all over, so much that even speaking hurts . I forced my extremely anxious self to go to the dentist yesterday. She said my periodontitis was no worse than last year (when I had a deep cleaning), no cavities, and she did a regular cleaning. Last night it felt so much better, but this morning the pain was back. She thought things would feel much better after a cleaning, and now I’m so frustrated again. is my mouth sore from a regular cleaning?? I’ve been taking Advil and tylenol but still have pain. The one thing I haven’t done yet is a mouthguard … she took measurements yesterday for a night guard. Is the pain maybe from night grinding? But then why did it feel so much better after yesterday’s appointment? I’m so confused … is there anything else I can do for the pain? Help??
