Temporary partial bridge: I recently visited my dentist to have a temporary bridge installed.
While waiting for the permanent bridge to arrive, I began to experience pain not only on my upper right rear where the temp bridge was done but the bottom right also.
This has been happening for a month. I retrun to the dentist with my complaints, to no avail he had no answers. I continue to suffer in pain now with headaches.
Teeth has become sensitive also. ... Visitor from KY
It sounds like the bridge has changed your occlusion but your dentist is unable to diagnose it accurately.
Get some consults with dentists who specialize in tmj diagnosis and treatment. Hold off on the bridge.
Since temporary bridges are used as a final template for the permanent bridge, you may not want your current dentist to complete your treatment.
