Can Heat Cause A Toothache
The opposite is true: "There is one disease of the Jaws which seems in reality to have no connection with the Teeth, but of which the Teeth are generally suspected to be the cause. As simple pain demonstrates nothing, a Tooth is often suspected, is perhaps drawn out; but still the pain continues, with this difference however, that it now seems to be in the root of the next Tooth". John Hunter (1778). It is true today. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You : You really need to see a dentist. A dentist can block the pain with a local anesthetic and deal with the problem quickly, efficiently, and properly. Pain medication and antibiotics really won't help you. A visit to the er will be expensive and they won't be able to really help you much. See a dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Tooth pain started 3 weeks after perm crown.
Dentist: wait, see if the nerves correct themselves.
Root canal? Wait?
Heat hurts and can't chew food
RCT: Sensitivity to heat is especially a classic sign of nerve involvement and the need for root canal therapy. Pain on biting pressure can be merely the bite being high and the need to adjust the bite. However, both symptoms combined along with the course of events that you describe would make the need for rct very likely. I think 3 weeks is long enough to wait for resolution. See your dentist now. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Tooth pain in several teeth from just heat and x-rays came out negative. I have deep fillings on one of my teeth. Do i need a root canal?
Yes and No: You need a root canal if one or more of your teeth have irreversible nerve inflammation, or if the tooth or teeth are dead or dying. You don't need a root canal if the pain-causing inflammation is reversible. You may need to replace the deep filling with a sedative liner and a new filling. You may also need to do a bite adjustment. You should probably see an endodontist for a 2nd opinion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Went to Er for face swelling n tooth pain took 5 penicillin vk should the swelling be going down should I use ice or heat for swelling n salt water ?
Great expectations: Antibiotics will not cure an abscess, just control the infection until it can actually be physically treated (root canal/crown or extraction/implant/crown). Facial swelling means infection is already swelling. If you are taking penicillin 4x/day it may take 48-72 hours for swelling to begin to go down. Do NOT stop taking PCN prematurely. Unless you see Dentist infection will return. Go now. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Toothache to cold: There is nerve tissue within the tooth whose purpose is to detect stimuli and transmit it to the brain as a protective mechanism. In similar fashion if you hold your hand near fire, the brain says : "careful, danger"? The cause can be from merely extreme cold, to defective filling, to decay, to cervical erosion, the fractured tooth, to exposed nerve. See a dentist to determine which one it is. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
