Tooth pain is the most common dental problem. Pain in the tooth is an indication of bad oral health, that requires appropriate dental treatment. People usually do not get dental checkup and tooth cleaning done at regular intervals, and visit a dentist only in case of pain in a tooth. This can result in an emergency dental treatment. The pain in the tooth and its dental treatment can be avoided if regular checkups are done by the dentist, before the start of tooth pain.
Tooth pain should not be neglected and you should visit a dentist for treatment. People sometimes take medicine for the pain or take home remedies. It can only suppress the pain for some time but it will not treat the real cause of the pain.
Therefore, correct diagnosis of tooth pain and the appropriate dental treatment should be done if you feel pain in a tooth.
Sensitivity in the tooth is the feeling of pain when hot or cold food or liquid touches a tooth. It happens when the pulp inside the tooth is exposed to hot or cold food or liquid. If the outer layer of the tooth is worn-out or decayed, then it gets thin. It causes the food or liquid to touch the inner pulp of the tooth, and it causes pain in the tooth.
Many special toothpastes are available to cure the sensitivity in the tooth. These can only suppress the pain but do not cure the cause. Therefore, the correct dental procedure is root canal treatment of the tooth and a tooth crown over the tooth.
