There really is no need to put up with painful teeth. Quite apart from being hugely inconvenient, dental pain might be the harbinger of a deeper problem that will need to be solved in order for your mouth to stay as healthy as it ought to be. Make an appointment to see your dentist immediately if you find that your teeth are painful in any way.
Dental pain can take a variety of forms. There is the mild sensitivity that might greet you if eating or drinking things that are hot or cold like tea or ice cream. Then there is the chronic pain that won’t go away and keeps you awake at night. As might be expected, these different types of dental pain have different causes too.
If your enamel is beginning to wear away then you can get the mild sensations of sensitivity as your nerves become exposed to changes in temperature and so forth. If the pain is more severe then the causes might be more severe also. An abscess in the tooth because of an infected pulp chamber can be very painful indeed and might require root canal treatment to sort it out. In less grievous cases of dental pain, you might need to have a cavity filled or simply tighten up your oral hygiene routine at home to ensure that you are removing all the plaque that you possibly can.
