Can nerve issues cause tooth pain/sensitivity?

I've been wondering this as my teeth have been abnormally sensitive ever since my pain amped up. I know it can cause tinnitus, and my teeth are in good shape and I have no current cavities. Not to mention this feels nothing like having a cavity, it's almost an electric shock if cold water or a piece of sugarless gum even touches certain areas.

  • Cenching or grinding of the teeth can lead to mild pain and sensitivity in the teeth. Does your injuries occur in your neck in which it could be causing you to grind your teeth in your sleep?

  • I have for awhile now, experienced the same issue and just recently got to the bottom of it. There is a medical condition that's called "Xerostomia", which is a million dollar word for "extreme cotton mouth" caused by narcotic pain med use.

    Xerostomia is brought about by lack of saliva production (especially when sleeping), which in turn dries out the the gums and teeth...making the teeth sensitive to water, sugar, foods, etc. and the gums susceptible to infections.

    Hope this helps you out and perhaps Google it for more detailed information. Take care -

  • I can relate. My upper six year molars kill me when my body pain kicks into higher gear. Makes no sense.
