A few weeks back I had to have my top right wisdom tooth pulled out. The pain was excruciating and gave me really bad headaches. I wish I knew then what I knew now in how to control the pain while getting a dentist’s appointment.
Although pain is our brain’s way of protecting us from further damage or infection to organs and other areas of the body, most of us suffering from acute pain would prefer to do without. Unfortunately, we will all at some point in our lives end up with severe toothache as a result of irregular activity inside the tooth’s pulp chamber. However, the severity of the pain we feel due to such dental disasters is down to the degree of stimulus involved and which type it is. Those of us that have a favourite aunt to discuss various matters of life over with may not be at all surprised that she is able to shed some light on some of the causes of disturbing dental pain. But without hurting the feelings of our concerned relative, it would be wise to do some online research into the various reasons for tooth pain that never seems to wane.
