Emergency dentistry is a field that requires a dentist to have an extensive background in solving cases of acute pain and sensitivity without delay.
Sharp pain in a tooth often results from inflammation of the pulp (aka nerve in the tooth). The types of pain could be dull, throbbing, pressure-sensitive, hot and cold sensitivity and radiating to the opposite arch in the mouth. A toothache can arise from many causes such as deep decay, clenching, trauma, or hairline fracture.
Do not expect to need a root canal treatment for a toothache. The most common misdiagnosed symptom is a toothache that is not a dying nerve, but temporary inflammation due to clenching.
Another cause of pain, the cold sensitive tooth, may only be the result of an exposed root and can be easily cured by bonding over the root or gum graft.
