Funny you should bring this up today! I had this problem just today. However, I attributed it to being out in the cold, watching my grandson sled and then coming into the house and having hot cocoa. The only thing I would say to you on this is make a quick appointment with the dentist. When a person has Sjogrens, tooth decay can happen rather rapidly. Once diagnosed with this, I was told to go to the dentist every 3-6 months.

Try sensitive teeth tooth paste and pain reliever till the pain subsides. I use a natural tooth paste and it works great. PM me if you want the name of it.

I also get aching teeth when flying and when having I/V vasodilation treatment, but subsides afterwards.

I, too, have had that feeling from time to time. It seems to act up and then go away. I hazzard a guess that it's my gums receding . My dentist used a sealant on one of my eyeteeth that was really giving me some trouble. She said it was the gums shrinking and the root starts to get exposed and is very sensitive. I haven't had any pain from it since she did that. I think maybe it's time to have a few more done.
Warm and Happy to you! Vee

I too have systemic sclero, raynauds and sjo's....just like you. My front teeth have also started to hurt and I do have an appointment to see my dentist next week. I was originally thinking perhaps I was gritting my teeth at night as it seemed to be worse when I first woke up....? or perhaps thats just when I noticed it most before the distractions of the day.
A visit to the dentist seems like a good idea!
If I find out anything from my Dentist I will let you know!

Sensodyne also makes some similar products under the Oasis name. The mouthwash sort of burns my mouth. I do, however, like their little spray bottle of artificial saliva.

Thank you for mentioning this.
Yes, I have used Biotene and Sensodyne products, as well as other brands, and prescription toothpaste. More tips on managing Sjogren's syndrome can be found on our main site at:

I recently got one. My biggest problem with it is that it seems to cause a gag reflex, especially toward the back teeth.
