Causes of Toothache
Why do teeth hurt?
In the world of cause-and-effect relationships, toothache is a consequence, but the reasons for this can be a great many, why do the upper or lower front and back teeth ache and ache? The following is a list of the most common causes of pain in the teeth:
- Enamel thinning and wedge-shaped defects
- Most often, in these diseases there is a sensitivity to touch the teeth, especially in the area of the necks. There is a aching pain in the teeth. This is most significant when brushing your teeth and eating cold foods.

Tooth reaction to hot or cold
- If a tooth reacts to cold or hot, then most often, the tooth has a carious cavity, when ingested into pieces of food, as well as a hot, cold, sour and sweet drink, there is a sharp pain that passes after rinsing the mouth and taking painkillers.
In some cases, after filling, with poor sealing of dentin, a living tooth and after treatment reacts to hot and cold.

- If all the teeth whine a lot, either on the right or on the left, and only one or two teeth are destroyed, then the most likely cause is the death of the dental nerve. When an infection gets into the dental pulp, pulpitis occurs, which provokes a constant, strong, spontaneous toothache, aggravated at night. The pain is very intense, and is practically not relieved by using pills and rinsing. Also pulpit tooth hurts when pressed.
- When pain increases to a critical threshold when you press a tooth, when you can’t touch it at all, there is a feeling of growing (enlarged, becoming longer) root, a pulsating pain in the tooth appears, body temperature rises, periodontal inflammation can be assumed.
- In cases where there is no direct damage to the teeth, pain can arise from gum disease, as a result of diseases such as periodontitis and gingivitis. There is a displacement of the dental crown, while it hurts to press the tooth. The pain when you press a tooth is the stronger, the greater its mobility.
- Patients are often asked: “Why do all teeth ache at the same time, immediately, left or right”? With the periodic spread of severe pain impulses over the entire left or right side of the face, including the teeth, we can talk about trigeminal neuralgia. At the same time, the upper teeth hurt and the lower teeth hurt, and sometimes all the front teeth hurt. It depends on the excitation of a specific branch of the trigeminal nerve.
- When the teeth are erased, which is accompanied by a decrease in bite and pain when closing the teeth in the area of the chewing surface along the line of closure, it is very likely that this may be bruxism, which caused thinning of the enamel, even dentin.
As it has already become clear, the causes of pain in the teeth are numerous, therefore, it is better to entrust the correct diagnosis and therapeutic measures to the dentist in whom you are sure. He will be able to provide qualified assistance and knows exactly what to do if the tooth is aching. He will tell you what to do to prevent a toothache in the future.
Toothache: what to do and what to remove?
How and how is pain and aches in the teeth treated?
What if a tooth aches badly? How to remove a toothache? What to drink from a toothache? Which toothache remedy is better?
In principle, questions can be slightly clarified: What to do with severe toothache, when the dentist is not available ?. In fact, 90% of the population with problems with toothache immediately go to the dental clinic, but if you are on a hike, in the woods or mountains, far from civilization, what can you do? Of course, it is difficult to determine what to take and what will help you personally from the toothache, however, below are the most common ways to relieve toothache at home or to soothe aching teeth in the country or on the march.
- Taking pain pills
- Pills are the most commonly used painkillers for toothache. Tablets Ketans, Nise, Nurofen-Express and Salpadein have the strongest effect of toothache at home. Their action can be enhanced if you take one tablet of Suprastin or Claritin 30 minutes before taking it. At the reception of analgesics can withstand up to 6-7 days, until you return to the city and get to the doctor.
- If a toothache hurts, the toothache can soothe the rinsing of the sick tooth with ethyl alcohol or vodka.
- If there is a large carious cavity in the sore tooth (hollow), then you can break off a small piece of anesthetic pill and put it in this tooth hole, the pain will subside.
- Alcohol solution of propolis or tincture of oak bark can reduce toothache with intensive rinsing of the source of toothache. Rinse for toothache should be carried out 3-5 times in an hour.
- When you try to escape from a badly aching tooth, you can listen to hard rock, which changes the bio-rhythms of the brain, including pain sensitivity.
As such, an anesthetic for teeth is only first aid. Home remedies for toothache can soothe a pain in the tooth for a maximum of several weeks, so you should not postpone a visit to the dentist if the medication is an analgesic for toothache. If a tooth once gets sick or from time to time all teeth hurt, only a specialist can determine the exact cause and carry out a quality treatment that relieves toothache almost forever.
Why does a tooth ache after removal or treatment?
In some cases, after the dentist’s treatment, there is pain in the teeth that he has treated. Why is this happening?
If you do not pass, or vice versa, the toothache has increased after the removal of the tooth, you should not panic. Even with the most accurate and fast tooth extraction process, it takes at least 3-5 days to remove the swelling of the gums around the hole of the former tooth. As a rule, a dental surgeon for traumatic dental removal will advise what to do, what drugs to take. If after 5-7 days the pain has not subsided, and the edema has not decreased, it is necessary to consult a doctor again.
Toothache after treatment of caries or root canals most often either does not occur or is very weak. Nevertheless, there are cases (in 10-20%), when there are quite serious painful sensations, a tooth without a nerve hurts a lot when biting. In any manipulation of the root canals, a reaction of periodontal fibers occurs, which can give a painful reaction, and in the treatment of caries, painful reactions of the odontoblast cells in the pulp of the tooth are possible. If the ache and tooth ache after treatment, you must wait a few days. Within 5 – 10 days all pain reactions pass or significantly decrease. If this does not happen, we must once again consult a doctor.
After implantation, painful manifestations are also possible within 1-2 weeks, during the period of swelling of the tissues around the operating area. As the swelling decreases, pain also passes. Most often, dentists prescribe drugs to reduce swelling and reduce pain.
As a result, I would like to remind you that the most powerful tool and the best medicine for toothache is regular prevention of diseases of the oral cavity and teeth, including periodic visits to the dentist once every 6 months.
