ask the dentist
I have this sharp pain on only the right side of my mouth, it feels as if someone pulled all of my teeth out, and it happened every time I eat or drink and will last for about an hour or two after I do eat or drink.
Again, its mostly tooth pain, maybe slight gum pain, but does not feel like gum pain. Do you know what this may be?

Each possible situation needs to be evaluated with a dentist, utilizing diagnostic test to rule out certain possible causes and figure out the root of the problem.
