Tooth pain frequently creeps up on you out of nowhere. There doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with your teeth, but then you eat or drink something too hot, too cold, or too sweet and you feel that sharp stab in your tooth. A toothache could be indicative of many different things, such as:
- Tooth decay
- An abscess
- A tooth fracture
- A damaged filling
- Repetitive stress from grinding or chewing
- An infection
The best way to rule out any of these factors is to see your dentist if the pain lasts for more than two days. If the pain is severe you shouldn’t wait. Call our team at Boston Dental today!
