Tooth pain can have quite an effect on a persons well-being and state of mind. The common cause of such a pain is typically an exposed nerve or root. An infection caused by gum disease, or tooth decay are sources for the exposure. In certain instances the pain may originate from areas other than those associated with the teeth.

Toothaches will make anyone feel miserable. The drive to figure out what’s causing you or a loved one pain is completely understandable.
Teeth that are misaligned can press against others, pushing them out of line as well, resulting in aches and pains. Impacted wisdom teeth, also known as wisdom teeth that have failed to break through the gum line, can also be extremely painful as they fester below the gum line and sometimes push against other teeth. These issues should be brought to the attention of your dentist, if they haven’t been addressed yet. For misaligned teeth, an orthodontic solution will likely be proposed, such as braces, and surgery will be needed to fix impacted wisdom teeth.
