Depends: It depends on location of pain and primarily its cause. If the cause is curable or manageable, you may have complete resolution of pain, if not, then .....

Too vague: Not sure what kind of pain, where the pain is located, does it come and go, whom you have seen. I would write up a pain diary. Each day, write down what you eat, how you feel, rate your pain from 0-10, how it changes throughout the day, etc. Then talk to your doctor about going to a pain clinic. Hopefully you can be helped!

A 43-year-old member asked:
How do I know when will the pain go away from depression?

Some last longer: Depression is the kind of disorder that is like a thumbprint. I've never seen two exactly alike and having the exact same length and course. It is unique to you. Dependent upon your history, your strengths, coping abilities, and hard work to manage the symptoms and patterns associated with the disorder.

A 49-year-old female asked:
I'm using desensitiving toothpaste..When will the pain go away?

Give it time: Depends on what's causing the pain. If roots of teeth exposed, topical Fluoride may help. If you have hot or cold sensitivity, may be cavities. If gums receding, may be gum infection or over-brushing. Toothpaste will not treat infection. See your dentist to find out why teeth are sensitive, and if desensitizing toothpaste is appropriate.

A 39-year-old member asked:
Will the pain from biting down on my incisors and hitting a bracket go away?
1 doctor answer • 2 doctors weighed in

Yes: Of course when your brakets are removed. Every time you hit the bracket you are taking the tooth and focring it into the socket. There are multiple nerves endings in the socket and this is why you feel pain. Actually , the trauma might actually cause a swelling in the ligament space which could make the tooth tender for several days if not weeks.
