Common causes of dental pain

Dental pain can come and go depending on what you are doing or eating, or be a constant throbbing or ache. They often come hand in hand with other issues such as swelling and sensitivity of your gums, jaw, or face, or pain when you eat cold, hot or sweet food.

Dental pain can indicate some issues such as:

  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth cracks
  • Cavities
  • Gum disease or infection
  • Wisdom teeth impacting or coming through
  • Fillings coming loose

Tooth pain is often a sign of an underlying dental issue, and it’s important not to ignore it. You should not ignore tooth pain when it is severe, persistent, or accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, swelling, or discharge. These could be signs of an infection, abscess, or other serious dental problems that require immediate attention from a dentist. Additionally, if you have a history of dental problems, it’s important to seek prompt treatment for any new or worsening tooth pain.

Tooth pain can sometimes resolve itself, but it depends on the cause of the pain. If the pain is due to a minor issue such as sensitivity or a small cavity, it may go away on its own or with the help of desensitizing toothpaste or a filling. However, if the pain is due to a more serious issue such as an infection or abscess, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible to prevent further damage and complications. Ignoring tooth pain can lead to more serious issues that may require more extensive and costly treatment.

A tooth infection, also known as a dental abscess, can cause various symptoms, such as severe pain, sensitivity to temperature, swelling of the gums, and a fever. You may also experience bad breath, an unpleasant taste in your mouth, or notice pus coming from the infected tooth. If you suspect you have a tooth infection, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible, as it won’t go away on its own and can lead to serious complications if left untreated.
