hello there,

Dental pain is caused due to several reasons like dental decay , it is a bacterial carious process that infects the dental pulp or the tooth nerve tissue leading to pain and discomfort.

Pain in the tooth is also caused due to periapical reasons like periapical cysts , abscess , granuloma , periodontal or gingival infection.

i would suggest you to get a X RAY examination done for the affected tooth which will help in diagnosing the cause of pain in the tooth accordingly treatment can be carried out.

approach a dentist and get the evaluation done , decayed teeth are treated with root canal treatment to relive pain permanently.

i hope this information helps ,

take care.

Hi Shariful Alam,

From the query you have asked,its not clear that what type of dental pain,onset and duration of dental pain etc.
To treat the dental pain,cause of pain has to be evaluated clinically by a dentist.
I would advice you to get your decayed teeth restored/root canal treated.
Scaling of teeth can be done.
Analgesics can relieve pain temporarily.
Grossly decayed teeth has to be extracted.
Always maintain oral hygiene well.
To prevent caries occurrence use fluoridated toothpaste and brush your teeth using soft-interdental toothbrush in back-forth and up-down motion.
Use chlorhexidine mouthrinse to gargle.
Please do visit your dentist for further guidance.
Take care.

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Dental pain indicates infection of the tooth that had spread to the pulpal tissue, such type of the infected tooth need to be treated with root canal treatment to save it permanently.
I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get the checkup done, take an x-ray of the tooth for diagnosing the cause of the pain in the tooth and accordingly determine the treatment plan.
Take tab odoxil and tab zerodol TDS for pain relief.
Antibiotics and analgesics will give temporary relief,, so i would encourage you to complete the treatment of the tooth.
Maintain a good oral hygiene and take antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

The easiest way to treat dental pain is by changing toothpaste, using a medicated mouthwash, using an on-the-spot pain reliever gel or taking pain reliever pills.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query,

there are a few things that a pain sufferer can do to bring temporary relief. Rinsing the mouth with warm salt water, germ-killing mouthwash, or peroxide-based mouthwash may help people who have pain that seems to be caused by an infection. Rinses and mouthwashes can usually be found near the toothpaste in a grocery or other store.

If tooth decay has caused any cavities, or if fillings have loosened or come out entirely, tiny particles of food may become lodged in these areas, leading to pain.
Taking an over-the-counter pain reliever can be helpful as well.
Gels or drops designed for mouth pain are good options as well.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful

Hello there,

Thanks for writing your query.

Reasons for dental pain could be following-

1. Grossly decayed tooth.
2. Pulp tissue involvement.
3. Impacted wisdom teeth.
4. Pulpal/periodontal abscess.
5. Trauma.
6. Infection.
7. Cyst.etc......

So i would suggest you consult a dentist and get the thorough clinical examination and x-ray of the affected area done after rule out the cause of pain take symptomatic treatment.

For pulp tissue involvement root canal treatment is best for permanent relief,in case of impacted wisdom tooth,if space is not enough for teeth eruption extraction will be the treatment option,like this there will be different treatment for different problem.

Hope this will be helpful.

Take care.

Hi,
Consult your dentist to identify the source of dental pain. Analgesics is only a temporary measure for pain relief. The permanent solution is to obtain treatment for the problem tooth.
