    I am experiencing tooth sensitivity/aches as a result of placing a lysol cleaning agent in my mouth. Despite limited seconds of exposure ( approximately 5 seconds or so maybe), ongoing sensitivity and aches have persisted for nearly 2 months so far. Hind site, it is obviously dumb to use as an agent to kill germs in a mouth and am wondering about permanent or semi-permanent damage that may have been done to gums/enamel etc. After seeking medical guidance through both a doctor and dentist, they reassured me that I "should" be fine; however; I cannot recall ever feeling symptoms like this in my mouth and it is on going. I have had a custom nite guard ordered recently due to my dentist believing I grind/clench my teeth at night due to recent symptoms and signs of receding gum lines; however, I saw my dentist about 3 months ago and none of this was ever an issue (grinding, sensitivity/aching). I'm using sensodyne/pronamel and pain medication to help alleviate things, but I'm tired of feeling like this and wondering what else I can do. I plan to see my dentist soon to get my nite guard, but these symptoms I have are persistent and constant. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you.
