If you have a tooth that is sensitive to temperature or uncomfortable when biting or eating, then it’s time to get it seen to. Different kinds of tooth pain have different causes. If you’re experiencing severe toothache, cracked tooth pain or even nerve pain in a broken tooth, it’s a sign that something is not right.
Getting a dentist to review your tooth early could prevent further deterioration and help to avoid more complex and costly treatments. In severe cases, without seeing a dentist, you could end up losing the tooth or allowing an infection to enter the blood stream, which then requires hospitalisation.
So it’s always worth checking, and at the very least, you could find out your teeth are in good health and you’ll have a better sleep for it!
