Causes of pain

In order to properly cure the pathology, the doctor needs
know what caused the development of such a state, because
depending on the nature of the pain, the prerequisites can be

Acute pain

  1. Pulp hyperemia – the initial stage of the inflammatory process,
    affecting the dental nerve. In this case, the patient suddenly
    there is an attack of pain, which after some time
    spontaneously subsides. The disease can not develop on absolutely
    healthy tooth. Hyperemia is usually preceded by deep caries. So
    as partial pulp inflammation is a reversible process, then
    with timely treatment to the doctor you can keep the tooth alive.
  2. Acute serous pulpitis – diffuse irreversible inflammation
    neurovascular bundle of the tooth. For this form of pulpitis is characteristic
    acute paroxysmal pain, predominantly disturbing at night
    time. Discomfort occurs unexpectedly, while
    pain attacks are replaced by “bright” intervals. At the initial
    stage painless period is long enough, but when
    the process is aggravated, the pain becomes unbearable.
  3. Acute purulent pulpitis is the next stage of pulp inflammation,
    starting at the moment of joining a purulent infection. Sensations in
    the patient’s causative tooth becomes pulsating, intensifying
    from hot. The patient points to a feeling of pain in the tooth,
    painless gaps are practically absent.
  4. Acute apical periodontitis is a disease that
    develops when infection from the root canal system penetrates into
    the periapical tissues surrounding the tooth root and causes there
    inflammation. By type of exudate may be serous or purulent. With
    Serious periodontitis in a person has a constant aching
    pain increasing when pressing a tooth. When the process goes to
    purulent stage, sensations acquire a pulsating and radiating
    character Often the patient points to the feeling of a “grown” tooth,
    while trying to close the jaws lead to unbearable
  5. Acute periostitis is an inflammatory process that affects
    periosteum. Occurs due to lack of timely treatment
    periodontitis. In addition to pain, swelling occurs in
    areas of a causative tooth, and often the cheek becomes swollen and the face becomes

Intermittent pain

Не всегда болевые ощущения носят острый character When
of a person strongly whines a tooth, he tries as soon as possible to get to
to the doctor. Things are different with chronic recurrent
pains. They are rather weak, occur occasionally, or
after exposure to any stimulus, such as a sweet or

  1. Hyperesthesia of hard tissues – with hypersensitivity
    периодически возникает болезненность, которая  утихает после
    eliminate annoying factor. Externally, the tooth looks absolutely
    healthy or has areas of increased abrasion in the neck area
    (wedge-shaped defects).
  2. Enamel cracks – congenital structural damage or
    resulting from injuries as well as sudden drops
    temperatures of consumed foods lead to the fact that sometimes
    there may be a pain reaction in contact with cold air,
    hot or cold foods; and sweet foods.
  3. Medium caries – the destruction of hard tissue is accompanied by
    that irritation is freely transmitted through dentinal tubules
    into the pulp chamber. Discomfort is aggravated by drinking.
    hot, cold or sweet. After removing the stimulus
    the pain disappears.
  4. Post-sealing pains – appear immediately after setting
    fillings or a few days later. So зуб может реагировать на
    preparation and manipulation of the restoration.
    Overdrying, excessive dressing, material shrinkage,
    the separation of the gasket layer – all this leads to the fact that the tooth aches. AT
    norm these feelings pass within a week, but if
    soreness intensifies daily then it is necessary to turn to
    a doctor who did therapy.
  5. Chronic apical periodontitis – the disease proceeds
    almost painless. If at the top of the root there is
    granuloma, there may be occasional discomfort
    when you press a tooth. With снижении иммунной защиты и развитии общего
    inflammatory catarrhal disease, tooth response to depression
    may increase.

When it is necessary to see a doctor urgently

Immediate dental care is required for:

  • increasing inflammation;
  • the addition of purulent infection;
  • deterioration of the general condition of the body;
  • spreading the process to nearby tissues;
  • the occurrence of swelling of the gums or cheeks;
  • the formation of a fistula in the projection of the top of the tooth.

Self-healing effects

None of them, even the most effective pain pills,
help to avoid the occurrence of complications, if not engage
treatment to eliminate the cause that led to
the occurrence of such a state.

  • ATоспаление зубного нерва само не пропадет, кариес не исчезнет,
    but only vice versa – the course of these pathologies will only increase. therefore
    не стоит принимать лекарственные средства от зубной боли  или
    try to eliminate it at home with the help of various
    rinses and hope that visiting dental
    the cabinet will not be needed, it will only lead to the development of more
    serious diseases.
  • Timely uncured caries turns into inflammation
    dental nerve, in the absence of treatment of pulpitis process
    extends to the periapical tissues, which in turn
    causes damage to the periosteum.
  • Serous process is often complicated by the addition of purulent
    infections, when it is no longer necessary to take antibiotics.

The most dangerous consequences of not treating are:

  • osteomyelitis is an inflammatory process in the jaw bones,
    leading to their destruction;
  • abscess and cellulitis – purulent fusion of soft tissues;
  • mediastinitis – a condition where the infection penetrates the mediastinum
    and causes inflammation there;
  • sepsis – blood poisoning.
