Pulpal pain is caused by an infection or inflammation in the pulp chamber of the tooth. This type of pain can be severe and throbbing, and it may worsen when you bite down on your tooth.
Another reason for toothaches is periodontal pain, which occurs when there's inflammation or infection in the gums surrounding the tooth.
Referred pain is another possible cause of toothaches, which originates from other parts of your body but manifests as a sharp shooting sensation in your teeth, making it difficult to pinpoint its exact location.
Occlusal pain refers to the discomfort that results from bite problems where different areas do not fit together properly while biting/chewing food.
Tooth sensitivity occurs while eating/drinking hot/cold beverages due to gum recession exposing the dentine underneath the enamel, creating mild irritation stimulating the nerves under certain conditions.

If you have a toothache, it's important to see a dentist as soon as possible. Toothaches can be a sign of a serious dental problem that can get worse if left untreated. Delaying treatment can also lead to more pain and discomfort. As soon as you notice any signs of sensitivity or swelling, it's best to schedule an appointment.
We recommend visiting our office every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning. These regular appointments can help detect any potential dental problems early before they become more serious and require more extensive treatment. During these routine visits, our hygienist will also remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to cavities and gum disease if left unchecked.
As a general rule, any time the tooth is hurting or causing discomfort is considered tooth pain. However, some general health issues can cause tooth pain or sensitivity as well. These include tooth infection, gum disease, and tooth decay. A tooth abscess can also lead to serious pain.
To diagnose the cause of your tooth pain, our dentist may ask you questions about your general health as well as the symptoms you are experiencing. This helps narrow down the potential causes of sensitivity and pain. In some cases, you may need additional testing to diagnose the problem, such as a panoramic X-ray for the proper diagnosis of a tooth infection or an X-ray to diagnose an abscessed tooth that causes severe oral pain.
Once our dentist has diagnosed the cause of the pain and made a treatment plan to resolve it, the underlying condition causing the pain will be resolved, and the sensitivity should subside. It's important to follow any treatment plan recommended by our dentist to ensure proper healing and prevent further issues in the future.
There are many different causes of tooth pain, ranging from sensitivity issues to severe dental emergencies. Here are some of the most common types of tooth pain you may experience and what you can do to treat them:
Tooth pain may be indicative of a cavity, infection, gum disease, or another issue that requires treatment by a dental professional. Our dentist can diagnose the cause of your toothache through a comprehensive oral exam and digital X-rays of your mouth.
There are many treatments available for tooth pain relief, including over-the-counter medications and topical pain relievers, as well as prescription-strength pain medications and antibiotics. Be sure to consult with our doctor on which treatments are best for you based on the cause of your pain and its severity. Many patients will require more than one type of treatment to alleviate their discomfort. For example, a patient with gum disease may benefit from a prescription-strength mouthwash in addition to antibiotics or topical medication for pain.
