There are two types of tooth pain most people suffer from – SHARP and DULL
Sharp Tooth Pain
Sharp or acute tooth pain is often short and appears quickly. It can come on when you eat or when you speak, or it can have no trigger at all. There are many factors that can cause your sharp tooth pain.
- Tooth decay

- Tooth damage
- Grinding and clenching while you’re asleep
- A filling or crown that has been poorly installed
- Cold drinks or foods
- Sinus pain infection
- Nerve diseases
Sharp tooth pain can often be fixed by a visit to Glaser Dental. Dr. Glaser will investigate the cause and source of pain. You might need a cavity filled or a tooth repaired. Do not ignore sharp tooth pain. It can quickly progress to an infection.
Dull Tooth Pain
Dull tooth pain can be a sign of a more serious problem. Dull tooth pain often means that the nerves are damaged. It comes from the nerve (or the pulp) of the tooth. Hot food and drinks can trigger this pain. The dull ache begins slowly but then can last for a long time. It can even wake you up in the middle of the night.
If you have dull tooth pain you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Glaser to assess the source of your pain. A dull ache can be a sign of a serious infection.
