Research on caries bacteria strains

If the tooth hurts

Acute toothache cannot be ignored or endured. And the lack of competent treatment entails the development of serious complications. Pain is a warning signal of the body for the presence of failures in its work, arising as a result of irritation of certain receptors. In case of toothache, these are periodontal and pulp receptors. To cope with pain, it is imperative to find out the causes.

At the initial stage of development, it proceeds without any particular symptoms. But gradually the teeth affected by caries begin to show increased sensitivity to various kinds of stimuli (chemical, mechanical, temperature).

Unpleasant pain is even a sip of hot tea, eaten ice cream or the usual procedure for brushing your teeth.
