Common Causes of Dental Pain

Tooth Cavity

Cavities in the teeth are the most common cause. The pain normally is proportional to the depth of the cavity.The deeper the cavity is ,the deeper it is to the pulp(soft area inside the tooth-comprising mainly of nerves and blood vessels)-more is the pain.As the cavity begins from top or from sides of teeth-the initial complaint is mostly of sensitivity to sweet and cold and then gradually as it progresses depper it starts responding to hot and once it has reached the pulp we start experiencing pain continuously which is not initiated by any sweet,cold or hot.the pain becomes so intense that you might wake up from sleep also and quite a lot of times no painkiller helps at that time.even postural variation such as lying down or bending down can increase the pain.the treatment is simple cleaning of the cavity and filling if cavity is not very deep but its RCT if the cavity has reached into the pulp.

Sensitivity of Teeth

is also quite a number of times confused as pain in the teeth. It normally happens to be cold but can happen to heat as well.most of the times its there because of cracks in the teeth or because of tooth brush trauma( because of hard brushing or using hard brush) or because of teeth grinding.

Gum Problems

Gum problems can lead to bad breath , root cavities , mobility of teeth and loss of teeth too. Pain and sensitivity can be the symptom in Gum problems.

Mouth ulcers

Ulcers in the soft tissues around the teeth can also lead to severe pain. Ulcers can be caused by some Viral infections, trauma , can also be a manifestation of many skin diseases in the oral cavity.

Wisdom Teeth

This is a very common problem which happens with most of us and can lead to Pain ,Swelling and Discomfort.

Muscular Pain

The muscles of the head and neck form a complex interactive structure around the oral cavity . They work together for most of the functions . Any problem in the Cervical and in the Face muscles can lead to Dental Pain.

Pain can also be related to nerve disorders of the head and neck region.
