I have the same problem. Wisdom teeth out nearly a week ago and hardly any pain there, but the front teeth are throbbing. No cavities there (or at least not since my last dental cleaning which was about 6 weeks ago) and as far as I can tell, no gum disease. Flossing, brushing, rinsing with salt water, has made no difference. Pain meds don't work at all (though admittedly, I stopped taking prescription pain meds the day after the surgery because the pain wasn't that pad; the front tooth pain began on day three). I mentioned the pain to my dentist on follow-up but he didn't say anything or offer any thoughts. Ambesol worked briefly, but now, it's not. I take some comfort that it's not getting worse, but it's not getting better either! Thoughts would be appreciated.
I had surgery to have all 4 wisdom teeth out on 7/21/10 and have no pain in the incision site at all. They holes are healing and are not open and exposed but I called the surgeon 5 days after surgery. The pain is in my front bottom teeth (6). The pressure and sensitivity is too much to bare. Like all the pain meds dont help except the prescription...whick I am out of as well. The dentist said it was due to a nerve that was damaged during surgery and should begin to heal 2 weeks post op. If not that could mean I have a dry socket which could be an exposed nerve and would need to be packed and medicated. Great. More bills.. The pain has not eased up the first little bit since it began. I feel everyone's pain. Hope it gets better for all.
I have a similar problem. What more is along with the stinging pain running through the front teeth, I have a lasting burning of my lips and tongue. I had just one of my lower right wisdom tooth extracted four days back. I'm really scared as when I had two of my wisdom teeth removed in India, the treatment was very good and the dentist was competent that i was not even made aware of any such complications. But now in NZ, I had to do this one wisdom teeth and here I suffer with noone to help me with what this complications are about and the dentist seems helpless. Curse the dentists in this part of the world! they are only after money but are worthless *******!
I have the same issue. Got wisdom tooth out 6 days ago but it's the canine on that side that is becoming unbearable. It started about 4 days after the wisdom tooth extraction. It is the front area but specifically the canine tooth feels so sensitive and intensely painful. Please tell me this went away for all you guys? How long did it take and what prescription painkillers were you given that worked well? Thanks all xx

Yeah the answer to the problem in the military is MOTRIN by the fistful literally I took about 1200mg every 6 hours seemed to get it down to like a 1 or 2 instead of a 6 or 7. Would wake up in the am pretty freaking sore take it and stay on it all day... kinda **** job for the liver but I don't hear my liver hurting just my mouth...
