What Are Common Causes Of Tooth Pain?
The pain felt in a tooth is often the result of an irritation to the nerves in the root of your tooth. The central part of your tooth, known as the pulp, contains nerve endings that are very sensitive to pain. Infection and inflammation in the gums can cause pain to radiate to a tooth. Biting into something too hard can leave a tooth with a chip or crack in it that leads to pain. Decay in a tooth can cause tiny holes to develop that then leave your tooth with an aching feeling. At times food particle becomes lodged in between teeth creating irritation or inflammation and can lead to infection. Hypersensitivity occurs when the inner (dentin) layer of a tooth becomes exposed. In some cases pain appears to be in a tooth but is actually originating from your jaw joint, sinuses, or ears. Occasionally this pain can also be an indication that you are experiencing heart problems.
When Should I Seek Medical Attention For Tooth Pain?
If your tooth pain persistently lasts for more than 1 or 2 days you should seek medical help. If the aching pain in your tooth is preventing you from going to work or keeping you from completing your daily tasks, it is time to see a doctor. And immediately seek medical help you if you injure a tooth, develop a fever, swollen gums, or have any discharge from your gums.
