Tooth decay can result in dental pain. Tooth decay is often caused by poor oral hygiene habits or the consumption of sugary foods or drinks. Bacteria in the mouth produce plaque, which builds and breaks down the tooth's protective enamel. Over time, cavities form on the tooth's surface and eventually cause sensitivity to temperatures and sweets. In some cases, the cavity can reach the inner layers of the tooth and cause an infection and pain.
A wisdom tooth is the third and final adult molar to grow all the way. The wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop and come in when you are a teenager or young adult. They are often problematic and cause pain as they sometimes come in at odd angles or grow sideways.
An abscessed tooth occurs when bacteria build up in the pulp chamber of the tooth and affect the nerve. The infected tissue causes severe oral pain and sensitivity. In some cases, an abscess can occur inside the jaw bone and cause swelling near the ear. If a patient notices any symptoms, he or she should schedule an appointment with the dentist right away.
When a large filling becomes loose or damaged, the patient may experience discomfort while eating or drinking because of the sensitivity of the exposed root surface. Eventually, the tissue may break down or become infected as well. If the damage is too extensive, dentists may need to extract the tooth to preserve the health of the surrounding teeth and tissues.
Teeth grinding is a common problem that can cause damage to the teeth over time. Patients often grind their teeth during sleep, but some people also do this while they bite their nails or clench their teeth during the day. Grinding the teeth can lead to fractures in one or more teeth and can also cause the jaw to develop an uneven alignment.
Gum disease is a chronic condition that often goes unnoticed before it becomes severe. The infection slowly eats away at your gums and jawbone, which causes tooth loss if not treated properly.
