About Tooth Pain

Experiencing tooth pain is something no one should have to go through. Whether it be sharp and throbbing or achy pains, difficulty may arise when doing normal everyday things such as eating or concentrating. Tooth pain can result from many different sources. Some may be milder or in other cases more severe. Tooth pain occurs when the nerve of the tooth becomes irritated.

Tooth pain is a common complaint and can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few weeks. Pain can be expected after undergoing certain procedures and even routine cleanings. But, if pain has randomly developed we highly recommend you see one of our dentist specialists for a checkup. If pain is left untreated, further infection may arise and pain can get much worse.

  • Pain with chewing or biting
  • Sensitivity with hot or cold food/beverages

  • Swelling in gums
  • Trouble falling asleep

  • Cavities
  • Gingivitis
  • Pulpitis
  • Injury
  • Jaw pain
