Dental complaints related to deep caries or its consequences, e.g. pulpitis, may be manifested by increasing and decreasing pain. The reasons for the intensification are thermal factors, biting (chewing), sometimes the residue of meals within the cavities or in the periodontal pocket. When a tooth hurts, you should always go to the dentist for clinical and radiological assessment. The weakening of pain does not mean improvement. Sometimes, after pulpitis or trauma, the tooth may die and the tooth must be treated endodontically (root canal treatment) and then rebuilt (conservatively or prosthetically).
