Question:

Hello.
My incisor no.2 is sore, if I possibly tykker on something a little hard, you can't see that there is something wrong on the ray, the nerve in the tooth is also examined and are in working order, what can there be wrong? you have the opportunity to examine this, possibly, by a scan?

With kind regards
Else

Answer:

Dear Else,

If you f.ex. grinds his teeth at night, tooth is loaded and feels sore to chew on. That does not suggest inflammation if it does not display anything on x-ray and the nerve is in order. It is not necessary to complement the study with the scanning.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
