Your soreness and sensitivity can come from many causes, such as dental decay, injury, or undetected infection. Tooth pain must not be ignored, but you may not know the best ways to soothe your dental distress. To help you troubleshoot your tooth pain, check out this helpful guide to help you find the relief you need.
Abrupt Sensitivity to Hot and Cold
Do frosty foods and hot drinks cause your teeth to tingle? It’s usually caused by a minor problem like a lost filling, a bit of decay, or a slight gum recession. Here are four tips to treat these twinges:
Sensitivity to Hot and Cold After Dental Work
If you’ve recently had dental work, you may experience sensitivity. Dental work can irritate the pulp inside of the tooth, causing temporary sensitivity to extremes in temperature.
Pangs of Pain When Biting Down
The source of the sting can be tooth decay, a loose filling, or a crack in the tooth. Yet it also can come from deep damage to the tooth’s tissue.
Pressure and Discomfort in the Upper Teeth and jaw
The pain may be based on bruxism, which is the grinding of the teeth. But it can also be blamed on a sinus headache, which is felt in the teeth and face.
Perpetual Pain, Sensitivity & Swelling
When your teeth are causing this type of trouble, the problem may be an abscessed tooth that has caused an infection in the bone and tissue.
