Dental emergencies have a variety of causes. But a majority of tooth pain is a result of large cavities that have extended into the nerve space. This results in an infection or abscessed tooth. Cracked teeth that expose the nerve will also cause severe pain. In addition, advanced periodontal disease or impacted wisdom teeth could lead to intense pain. Due to the nature of dental related issues, the pain tends to increase as the days pass. As a tooth infection spreads, it can lead to severe swelling. This can compromise the airway and make it difficult to breathe. Whatever the cause, it’s extremely important to contact our office as soon as possible if you’re experiencing dental related pain.
