Kind of a silly question Why is it that dental pain is worse at night? I have been having tooth pain for quite sometime (as Gordon knows all to well) The pain subsided quite a bit for several weeks, and started up (with a vengence) a few days ago. At night I tell myself I am just going back and having it removed (it is a crowned tooth that would require an rct by a specialist which I can't afford, an my track record with rct's is not good to say the least) But in the morning I think, well maybe it is getting better....maybe it will subside again. Is there a reason for the nighttime pain?
(By the way Gordon, I finally figured out which tooth was causing the problem. I thought it was another tooth, but I did the Ice test and to my dismay, I realized exactly which tooth it was.)
