Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I've been experiencing tooth pain for several days now, and it's become increasingly difficult to eat or drink anything, especially when the food or water is at any temperature. What could be causing this?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Pain when consuming food or drinks at any temperature suggests that the pulp of your tooth may be inflamed or exposed due to extensive decay, or a broken/chipped tooth. It's essential to schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible to address the underlying cause. Treatment options may include covering the pulp or providing appropriate dental care. In the meantime, you can take an over-the-counter analgesic to help manage the pain until your appointment.
