Dental pain can be one of the worst pains one ever experiences, but surprisingly the solution is sometimes extremely simple.
There are different forms of dental pain- the pain can be caused by the tooth itself or by the surrounding environment- the gums around the teeth, sores in the mouth or even an ear-ache that radiates to the mouth area.

Types of dental pain
- Pain especially when biting down or chewing- may be caused by food wedged between the teeth. This can be excruciatingly painful and the solution is one of the simplest- your dentist will just pull the food out!
- Toothache- pain that comes from the tooth itself usually when the tooth is exposed to a change of temperature. This could be a cavity or decay that has already reached the root of the tooth in which case a root canal will be necessary.
- Pain from a fractured tooth – sometimes a fracture is deep in the root area and therefore there are no outer signs of the fracture. The tooth usually will hurt when releasing the mouth after biting down.
- Pain from a crown or filling that is too high- this will be painful especially when biting down. The solution will be to figure out exactly what area of the filling is too high and adjust it.
Pain caused by surrounding areas:
- Gum pain- can be caused by the inflammation of the gums or receded gums so the root of the tooth is exposed and sensitive. In these cases it’s important to see a dentist who has experience with gum problems; he may change your toothpaste or advise special cleaning techniques so your gums won’t be so sore.
- Sinusitis or Ear-ache – many times when the sinuses are full of liquid the pain radiates to the mouth area. It is very important to go to an experienced dentist who will know how to separate between the two things and not accidently diagnose the sinus infection as a sore tooth that needs a filling.
Because there are so many sources for dental pain it’s important when experiencing even the slightest pain from the mouth area to come in so we can have a look. Many times dental pain if diagnosed correctly can be solved within minutes and prevent suffering in vain!
