Often times, patients experience a “tooth ache” because the nerve of the tooth has been affected, most likely due to bacterial decay or trauma. This condition should be treated as soon as possible before the situation becomes worse. Endodontic therapy or “root canals” sometimes carries a stigma associated with pain. However, these procedures don’t cause pain, but instead are necessary to relieve pain and save teeth.
