I KNOW THIS IS LONG AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE LENGTH BUT PLEASE READ AND REPLY IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS CAUSING THIS HORRIBLE ALMOST UNBEARABLE PAIN. I am a 67 year old senior male that because of age and a lousy dentist my gums started receding until most of my teeth became loose. My new dentist advised me that he could probably save maybe 6 or 7 of the teeth but the rest would have to be extracted. After his telling me that he asked me what I thought the solution was and I stated to have all of my teeth extracted and to get dentures. I had all of my teeth extracted in the middle of April and saw my dentist last month. He stated my gums were not totally healed but took the first of several more impressions of my gums to keep track of the healing process. Herein lies the problem in the last 4 or 5 days I have had my left upper side of my gums start having an unbearable amount of pain that comes and goes it is like a bad tooth ache except I have no teeth. I have a dentist appointment on the 27tth of Dec and will certainly let my dentist know of the situation. Has anyone else experienced this happening to them. Like I said I was doing fine until 3 or 4 days ago and the pain suddenly started. It appears and disappears and then will reappear when I'm just sitting. There doesn't seem to be anything I'm doing that causes the pain to start it just does.
