In brief: Depends on problem

That would depend on what is causing the problem in the first place.
Toothaches are never normal, they are a sign that something else is going on. Recession, trauma, cavities, and infections can all cause tooth pain. If the problem persists for more than a couple days, please go see a dentist for an evaulation.
