Pain in and around the teeth are a common problem, especially in patients with poor oral hygiene. Pain may be constant or occur after stimulation (z. B. heat, cold, sweet foods or drinks, chewing, brushing teeth), or both. Etiology The most common causes of toothache (see table: Some causes of dental pain) are caries pulpitis Periapical abscess usually caused injuries breakthrough of a wisdom tooth (pericoronitis causing) toothache are tooth decay and its consequences. Tooth decay causes pain when the lesion expands through the enamel into the dentin. Pain occurs usually after stimulation by cold, heat, sweet foods or drinks or brushing; these stimuli set the fluid within the dentinal tubules in motion to induce a response in the pulp. As long as the symptoms after stimulus removal does not continue, the pulp is probably healthy enough to be maintained. This is called normal dentin, reversible Pulpalgia or reversible pulpitis. Pulpitis is an inflammation of the pulp, typically due to the progress of caries, cumulative smaller Pulpaschäden by previous large restorations, a faulty restoration or injury. They may be reversible or irreversible. Pressure necrosis often result from pulpitis. Pain may spontaneously or in response to stimulation, especially heat or cold, occur. In both cases, the pain for a minute or more stop. Once the pulp becomes necrotic, the pain disappears briefly on (hours to weeks). Subsequently, a periapical inflammation (apical periodontitis) or an abscess develops. From an untreated caries or pulpitis a periapical abscess can develop. The tooth reacts extremely sensitive to percussion (knocking with a metallic dental probe or a tongue depressor) and chewing. The abscess could be intraoral and eventually drain, or could develop cellulitis. Dental trauma can damage the pulp. The damage may later manifest itself soon after the injury or decades. Pericoronitis is an inflammation and infection of the tissue between the tooth and its overlying gingival flap (operculum). It usually occurs with an erupting wisdom tooth on (almost always a lower). impacted wisdom teeth ZEPHYR / SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY var model = {thumbnailUrl: ‘/-/media/manual/professional/images/m7820249_impacted_wisdom_teeth_x-ray_science_photo_library_high_de.jpg?la=de&thn=0&mw=350’ imageUrl: ‘/ – / media / manual / ? professional / images / m7820249_impacted_wisdom_teeth_x-ray_science_photo_library_high_de.jpg lang = en & thn = 0 ‘, title:’ impacted wisdom teeth ‘, description:’ u003Ca id = “v37894076 ” class = “”anchor “” u003e u003c / a u003e u003cdiv class = “”para “” u003e u003cp u003eDieses radiograph shows wedged wisdom teeth. hideTitle false: If the wisdom teeth erupt
