Gypsy,

The symptoms you get when you put pressure on your front tooth may indicate a problem with that tooth or it could indicate that you are clenching and/or grinding your teeth more than you realize. It is common for someone with that habit to have that occur with a front tooth because the tooth gets beat up when you brux and the periodontal ligament becomes inflamed.

The dentist checked my bite sitting up. Not lying down though. My mouth guard is about six months old, made in dental lab.

I tried acupuncture with no luck. Used to do yoga- I will try that again. I donít clench during the day but I do seem to hold my mouth in a weird position ( due to trying not to clench). I do not take any meds. The burning tongue is very weird. Iíll research the oral yeast infection.

I noticed over the weekend that if I put pressure on one of my front teeth, it brings up symptoms. Wondering if something is going on with that tooth. Going to run it by oral surgeon next week.

Thanks very much for your input!
