What is tooth pain?

Tooth pain is any discomfort experienced in the teeth or jaw. It is often indicative of an underlying problem, such as a chipped tooth, tooth damage, gum disease or tooth decay. Tooth pain can be debilitating and excruciatingly painful, so as soon as you experience any discomfort you should consult your dentist to diagnose the issue.

Symptoms of tooth pain

Pain in the teeth can manifest itself in a number of different ways, and at different times, but particular signs to look out for include throbbing in the teeth, as well as sharp or aching sensations. Symptoms may also be visible – red, swollen gums are a particular giveaway. Tooth pain may also lead to regular headaches.

Teeth Whitening Process

What causes tooth pain?

Tooth pain can have a number of different causes, from issues with the teeth or jaw to sources not actually related to your mouth. The most common causes of tooth pain include damage to the teeth, dental cavities, gum disease, gingivitis and periodontitis.

Alleviating tooth pain

The method of diagnosing and treating your tooth pain will depend on the cause and severity of the issue. For example, a broken tooth can be mended with a crown or a cavity, while gum disease is remedied in a number of ways, including by scaling and planing and, in extreme circumstances, a root canal or dental surgery.

For more information about fixing your tooth pain, consult your dentist.
