Subj: RE: [kl] Pain in upper teeth
Date: Mon, 24 Jul 2000 21:37:58 -0400

Boy it sure hurts though!!! This year I was certain that I had a serious
cavity or something due to horrible tooth pain on the top left side. While
I have had various sinus annoyances I'd never had this happen. When I
mentioned this to my husband he was unsurprised- apparently it happens to
him relatively frequently. Since then I've heard more people have this
problem. If the tooth pain hasn't been chronic (if it was I'd hope she
would already have seen a dentist) this is a possibility. The only other
thing that I would wonder about is if there is something about either her
anatomy or embouchure that is causing outward pressure on the teeth- if
there were maybe some sort of retainer would alleviate the discomfort.
Best Wishes,
