For the last few months i have been having a mild dull ache on my upper tooth. Occassionally, i can taste a foul metallic taste around the area of the dull aching tooth. I suspected that my tooth was fractured or that i had pulpitis. Therefore I went to a very well respected endodontist and he told me that there was nothing wrong with the dull aching tooth (the tooth had no symptoms of a crack/fracture, no decay, no cavity). He told me to wait a while. Since then the mild dull ache has remained. Yesterday i ate some nuts and intensity of the dull ache increased. Today the intensity of the dull ache seems to be decreasing. I am so confused why i am having these symptoms on this tooth, even though 2 endodontists have told me that the tooth looks healthy and functional.
