Severe toothache suddenly disappeared

User Level:
Posted by: superpain  (9 years ago)
Hi there!

For the past week, I have been suffering from extreme toothache in my right upper first molar. The pain goes on and off and I would feel pressure in my right ear. Four days ago, the pain was so excruciating, the painkillers didn't work. The next day, I woke up with a fever. But after that day, the pain calmed down and now it has completely disappeared.

Why did the pain suddenly disappear? I have already an appointment with the dentist. Should I cancel it? Thanks

You have an infection in that tooth. I think your body was able to fight the infection off that is why the pain stopped. However, the infection won't just go away, it will come back eventually, so you have to treat its source to avoid this from happening.

I would recommend you still attend to your appointment and get evaluated. Even if you no longer have pain now, you will have problems again in the future and you may end up losing that tooth.
