Wonder if your sudden Virginia bombardment has something to do with the tooth issue. It's pretty common to read that va's burn hotter than a "normal" blend so maybe it's a factor?

That's a good point. I personally haven't noticed a difference in smoke temps, but I suppose it's entirely possible since the way I tend to clench sort of prevents me from using my tongue as a thermometer. Yesterday and today I've been trying my best not to smoke clenched, and the teeth seem like they have mellowed down to near normal. I have a feeling that it's my smoking style, and my teeth have just had enough of acting as heat sinks.. and I it's such an ingrained habit now, that it's going to take some serious focus to break it.

Could possibly be from clenching in general, your bite line might be starting to change to suit your grip. I can only clench now on my left side comfortably, the right side seems to have moved and the buttons feel wonky
