If you are suffering from other symptoms that are serious like fever and chills, difficulty swallowing, and breathing or having a bad taste of a discharge, there’s the possibility that you may have serious dental problems that need to be treated immediately.

Root Causes of Tooth Pain

The most crucial tooth structure is the dental pulp. It is the reason why you feel tooth discomfort or sensitivity. This is the soft tissue located in the middle of the tooth, which contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues. It is often known as the nerve. It also extends down each root through the canals in the tooth.

If the pulp gets irritated or stimulated you feel pressure or pain. The term “toothache” refers to any pain or soreness within or around the tooth. The pain may be intense or dull, it can also be painful while chewing or biting. Your tooth might be more sensitive to temperatures. Tooth pain is an extremely painful and stressful experience, particularly when the reason for the pain is unclear. If you are able to determine the root of the discomfort, it’s easier to relieve the pain prior to your next dental appointment.

Toothaches and pains are usually due to these causes:

Tooth decay bacteria “eat” by consuming the enamel’s hard outside layer of the tooth
Gum disease – Infections to the gums, like gingivitis causes bacteria to accumulate around the root which can cause toothache
Clenching and grinding your teeth (Bruxism) are common in sleep, without being aware of it.
Sensitive teeth develop from dentin that is exposed (the tissue beneath the enamel and cementum) resulted from dental cavities, worn-out fillings, damaged teeth or receding gums
The tooth pulp is inflamed (Pulpitis) A tooth decay can penetrate deep into the pulp of the tooth, causing it to become inflamed , and irritation
Cracked tooth – A fracture or split could be caused by hitting something hard or falling, or even being struck on the face or jaw by something sharp
Abscess: A part or all the tooth’s pulp is destroyed, and the dead tissue creates an “pocket” of pus and bacteria known as an abscess.
The teeth (most typically wisdom teeth) are stopped from moving into the correct place in the mouth due to gums, teeth or bone
