Common "Tooth Pain" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Tooth Pain

Tooth pain can be due to various causes like tooth decay, abscesses, fractured teeth, altered bites due to malaligned teeth, bruxism, abrupt biting of hard food items, gum disease, and impacted teeth. Malaligned teeth put pressure on a particular set of teeth during chewing, causing pain only in those teeth. Whatever is the condition causing the tooth pain, correcting it can only relieve the tooth pain permanently.
