Bad infection: It means that your tooth needs attention. Call your dentist.

Warning sign: Not all teeth that have pain are infected, but many are letting you know there is a problem. You should seek the evaluation of a dentist or endodontist to determine the best course of action to relieve your pain.

Referred pain: It is not uncommon to have tooth pain radiate to the head, neck, shoulder, even arms. You know it is tooth related if all these symptoms disappeared after proper dental treatment. Get the tooth checked out asap!
