Pain in a tooth can be a warning sign. If untreated, the decay or problem could worsen and result in a severe infection.
Causes of tooth pain:
– Infections usually occur when dental caries or trauma allow bacteria into nerves and roots.
– Over-brushing can damage enamel and cause sensitivity.
– Grinding the teeth (bruxism) can provoke toothache. This stressful habit may happen involuntarily, while asleep.
If you have tooth pain, make an appointment with your dentist. The sooner you get treatment, the better chance you have of saving your tooth if it’s infected!
