Why do I have severe gum pain where no teeth are present? ...Visitor from Mississippi

The most common guess would be the possibility of an infection that has become deeply seated in your jawbone.

These types of situations can be common where broken off teeth were not provided a "final treatment" or where tooth extractions caused root tip fragments to break off and remain in the jaw.

These types of infections can go undiagnosed for years....

The best resource for researching this possibility further would be a Periodontist who has access to a ctscan apparatus. 3D imaging REVEALS these conditions.... whereas most conventional, old fashioned dental x-rays don't.

Once located, treatment shouldn't be complicated.
