The causes of pressure pain are varied. We note, among other things:
- Blocking food residues in an interdental space. A food particle caught in a space between two teeth can cause inflammation of the gums and underlying bone. A small piece of food trapped in an empty space caused by the loss of a filling can also cause more or less diffuse pain;
- A dental infection. If you experience severe, severe pain in your teeth at the slightest contact with them, it is likely that you have an infection in one of them;
- Tooth devitalization care (root canal treatment). A freshly devitalized tooth can become sensitive. The nerves and vessels of a tooth (called the pulp), once removed, can cause pain for 3 to 5 days in and around the treated tooth. It is also possible that the tooth may move slightly, but the situation is only temporary.
