weird feelings in my teeth!

My two bottom front teeth has been feeling a little funny since last Wednesday. They feel tight or crowded, kind of like how I felt back when I had braces on. they also kind of feel like the teeth were impacted recently, which they weren't. They don't hurt-- if I had to pinpoint, I would say the feeling came from between the two teeth. when I bite they don't hurt more. But the tight feeling is quite noticeable, and certainly not very comfortable. They've gotten a bit better in the past five days. What could cause this?
Also, I just knocked my upper front tooth on my computer screen 3 minutes ago. It hurt a little bit/ can feel the shock for about 30 seconds, and then it's back to normal. There was no bleeding and I couldn't see any fractures and it wasn't loose. Should I have a dentist look at it anyway? I am worried that it might die later.
I've been very worried about my teeth, and at this point I don't know how much to freak out about things that goes on in my mouth!

1. I've had a lot of dental problems when I was younger. About 10 days ago I had a molar pulled out. It received a root canal 10 years ago, and the root had since become infected and the infection spread to the next door tooth, causing me to lose another tooth.
2. Last Wednesday I had a dental cleaning and check-up, and requested that the dentist do a really thorough exam because I want to make sure I catch little problems early. She caught two very tiny cavities and filled them. She did say that I had more plaque on my lower front teeth (the ones feeling funny since the day before the appointment) but didn't say I have a cavity there.
3. I have had gingivitis before, and it felt differently from how my front teeth are feeling.
4. all of my wisdom teeth are out long ago
