There's a world of difference
between a toothache and sensitive
teeth. Occasionally, some
people will experience the discomfort
of a tooth that has suddenly
become hypersensitive. It
hurts when you sip a hot or cold
drink, suck in cold air, or eat
foods that are sweet or sour or
Usually, the tooth is sensitive
only for a short time. The sensitivity
soon goes away. But not
when someone has a toothache.
This can begin like the sensitive
tooth syndrome, when eating hot
or cold foods or when you are
chewing vigorously. But the
toothache doesn't go away. It
stays and becomes worse, until
you get the treatment you need.
The pain becomes intense. The
jaw begins to swell and you may
experience fever. This usually
means an abscess has formed in
the infected tooth and decay has
eaten through the pulp and
infected the gums and hard tissues.
There may be a pocket of
pus around the root.
Don't waste any time in getting
help from your dentist. He can
stop the pain, treat the tooth,
and save it with prompt treatment.
