There are many causes behind dental pain but it doesn’t take away from the fact that is a very uncomfortable scenario to find yourself in, in West London and it needs to be sorted out as soon as you can. The most common cause of pain is tooth decay; this is where the acids are getting through the enamel of the tooth. This will cause a darting pain whenever the tooth is bitten down on or exposed to extreme temperatures. But if you ignore the problem, you will be heading for serious agony when an abscess breaks out. Pain does come in other forms as well: if you have a chipped tooth, the tongue and maybe gums too can become lacerated and be very uncomfortable. Ulcers can be unbearable when they erupt, as can wisdom teeth just before they come through. In most scenarios, a painkiller will help soothe the problem, but with any crisis that pops up in the mouth, you will really need to see your dentist in the long run: immediately when it comes to and abscess or tooth decay. Ironically, once you have been treated by your dentist, during and after, pain can continue for days after and again you will have to turn to painkillers, but if it persists, you should get back to the dentist quickly.
