Tooth Aches and Pains
Inside each of your teeth, there’s living tissue with an artery, vein, and nerve. This is the reason you are able to feel hot or cold. However, when these areas get infected with bacteria you can experience excruciating tooth pain. Typically this happens after the bacteria has been eating away at the tooth for a long time. Infections cause swelling of the gum tissue which can cause gum pain but there are other types of tooth aches and pains that you can get.
One of the most common tooth pains is caused when teeth are grinding in the night while you sleep. Depending on the space between your teeth, food can get lodged in between the teeth in the gap and can cause pain and even infections if not removed. There are many different reasons as to why you may be having tooth aches and pains, for this reason it’s always best to consult with your dentist so that you may be provided with the correct solution.
