tender tooth

By Erich 5/29/2009 12:32:54 AM
I have a tooth which is tender on pressure. The other day I bite on some thing hard and it started hurting since then. Will it be o.k. or I have to get it pulled out.

Some times when you bite on some thing hard the tooth becomes tender due to trauma which causes pulpitis of the tooth. If it is reversible then tooth becomes normal with in a day or two maximum a week. If it keeps on hurting even after a week that means the pulpitis is irreversible and if you want to save the tooth you have to go for the root canal treatment. There is no need to get the tooth pulled out.
