Tooth hurts to anything crunchy

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: babyboosh56  (8 years ago)

Hello,
For the past two weeks, I have been getting mild pain in my first molar on the upper left side when I chew something crunchy. I’ve been using sensitivity toothpaste but it does not help much. Has anyone experienced this? Any idea what might be causing the pain? Will it go away? Any help would be appreciated.

Hey,

Well, this could be anything from an abscess (periodontal/periapical) to a cracked tooth. Every one of them would elicit a response similar to the one you are experiencing now. Using a sensitivity toothpaste would only help counter hypersensitivity, not pain. So, I'd suggest you visit a dentist so that he/she can narrow this down to what your tooth is up against.

Will it go away? I don't think so. An early intervention could most likely prevent this from getting worse. Good luck!
