Pain is the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. When we ignore it, especially if it is coming from a highly sensitive area, like the mouth, we risk serious injury or illness.

We urge you to listen to your body because persistent tooth pain is not normal, and ignoring it could have serious consequences.
