Common Causes of Tooth Pain


Related stories


There are many common causes of tooth pain, but there are also some less common conditions that can cause tooth pain. These include tooth decay, TMJ disorder, Trigeminal neuralgia, and sinus infections. The symptoms and treatment options for each condition will vary. However, it is important to visit a dentist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Tooth decay

A toothache can ruin anyone’s day. It can keep you from concentrating, prevent you from enjoying your favorite foods, and make you anxious about what to do about the pain. Tooth pain is a common symptom of decay, which is caused by bacteria and plaque on the teeth. When this happens, the tooth becomes cracked and exposes the dentin, which causes tooth pain. Fortunately, tooth decay can be treated with a natural-colored filling.

The first thing to do if you notice pain is to visit your dentist. If the pain is consistent or severe, you may have a tooth infection. Cavities are pockets of decay that can eat away at the tooth’s enamel and eventually destroy the tooth’s structure. Cracks in the tooth may not cause pain in the early stages, but if left untreated, they can become infected and cause fever and swelling. Infected teeth may require antibiotic treatment. If an abscess is large enough, a dentist may have to perform a surgical procedure to drain the infection.

Trigeminal neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is caused by pressure on the trigeminal nerve. In some cases, this pressure is due to a dental abscess or other cause, but it can also be due to a neurological disorder called trigeminal ganglion neuropathy. In many cases, this pain can last for years. A dentist will recommend major dental work, such as a root canal, to alleviate the pain.

Trigeminal neuralgia pain is typically triggered by any movement or touch on the face. This may be from chewing, using mouthwash, or even from wind or pressure. Sometimes, the pain can occur only on one side of the face.

Wisdom teeth

The development of wisdom teeth can lead to a variety of dental issues, including inflammation and pain. These teeth can also grow at an angle, which can cause them to damage neighboring teeth. They may also contribute to cavities and infections. Moreover, some of them are likely to become loose and cause pain during chewing. Some of these teeth may also be impacted, causing gum inflammation of the flap surrounding them.

One of the most common causes of tooth pain due to wisdom teeth is a gum infection known as pericoronitis. This infection affects the gum around the tooth and is associated with bad breath. The symptoms of this condition include swelling of the gums, bad breath, pain, and difficulty opening and closing the mouth. The infection can spread to nearby teeth and cause bone loss.

Sinus infection

Tooth pain is often a symptom of a sinus infection or sinusitis. The upper back teeth are close to the sinuses, so when these tissues become inflamed, it can cause tooth pain. The pain may also be accompanied by a fever and a low energy level.

If the pain is related to a blocked sinus, you may also experience facial tenderness and nasal discharge. In severe cases, you may experience a sharp, constant ache in the mouth. A blocked sinus can also lead to an abscess. In such cases, treatment is important to minimize infection and prevent its recurrence.

If you have tooth pain, there are several things you can do to alleviate the pain. The first step is to reduce the amount of sinus pressure in your head. This will reduce the amount of pressure on your teeth. It is also a good idea to drink plenty of liquid. Drinking hot teas and soups can help alleviate the pain.
