There are few types of minor pain that are as annoying and sometimes debilitating as a toothache. It can keep you from enjoying the foods and drinks you normally would relish and force you to significantly restrict your diet. Your predominant thought will be how to make the pain go away and the quicker, the better.
There are various symptoms related to the specific cause of your discomfort. If you can describe how and where it hurts or if you can pinpoint the time when the pain started or recall doing something that may have injured your tooth it can help your dentist to reach a diagnosis.
It will be helpful If you can break down your symptoms as to when they occur, what triggers the pain and if it is a sharp or dull sensation. If your discomfort is general and you feel like your entire mouth is aching your pain may be symptomatic of the involuntarily habit of grinding and clenching your teeth resulting in the condition known as bruxism.
A sharp shooting pain that occurs when you try to bite down usually indicates that the tooth has been damaged in some way or that tooth decay has reached through to the tooth’s nerve center.
