Pain in your teeth can be alarming, but you can preserve your oral health by making the right decisions at the first sign of pain. Is your toothache preventing you from eating, talking, or sleeping normally? If so, seeking immediate and comprehensive dental care is essential. Tooth pain can arise from a number of different oral issues ranging from minor to advanced. Our team at New Vision Dentistry can help get you on the road to pain relief, starting with a complete oral exam to determine the source of the issue.

Structural Damage

Broken, cracked, or fractured teeth can cause sudden and persistent tooth pain. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may be able to see visible cracks, or the damage may not be visible at all. Teeth can usually be restored after structural damage, but immediate care is important to avoid debris build-up, exposed nerve pain, and root damage.

Man suffering from tooth pain


Dental decay or cavities can cause significant tooth pain if left untreated. The pain from cavities can usually be felt when chewing or when the air hits the tooth. Some cavity pain is constant and can be felt in the jaw, face, or gums. Cavities can be easily repaired with the dental filling of your choice for the finished look you prefer.

Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity may be a common sign of aging or an indication that the enamel of your teeth is wearing thin. Pain from tooth sensitivity is a warning that there may be a developing dental issue that needs to be addressed. Pain from tooth sensitivity usually worsens with cold air, acidic foods, sugary foods, cold temperature foods, and cold beverages. Your dentists will be able to devise a plan to reduce your sensitivity and discomfort after a complete examination and diagnosis.

Gum Pain

Some tooth pain can be a result of issues with your gums. Infections at the root of your tooth called abscesses can cause severe pain and swelling. Other conditions like gum disease, which causes inflammation or damage to the gums from food or other objects could also be possible reasons you are experiencing pain. The health of your gums has a direct effect on the health of your teeth, so issues with your gums should be addressed at the first sign of discomfort.
