What is Causing the Pain in my Mouth?

I have pain that moves across different teeth on one side of my mouth, but it is not constant. I started using Sensodyne toothpaste not long ago and wondered whether it was connected. I also have a blocked ear on the same side and have read that it may be connected with sinus problems.

I can’t get into the dentist for another 2 weeks and am concerned it’s something more.

It needs a dentist to have a look. Did you start using Sensodyne because of sensitivity? It sounds as if one tooth is giving pain and that seems to be along the other teeth as well. The blocked ear and sinus problems are not usually connected with the teeth. However, sinus problems can give dull pain over the molar area as the sinus is directly above them. If it is getting worse then ask for an emergency appointment to see if you can get an earlier appointment.  Hope this helps, Jenny.
